SnapshotTahmoor Coal Mine is an underground coal mine consisting of the Tahmoor North Mining Domain (Western Domain) and Tahmoor South Mining Domain.

Extraction of Longwall West 4 (LW W4) was completed on 17th August 2022 which completed mining in the Western Domain area. Mining in the Tahmoor South domain commenced with the start of extraction for LW S1A on the 18th October 2022 and is currently progressively mining.

Mining of the Tahmoor South Domain extends the life of the Tahmoor Mine by a further 10 years, up until 2032.

Summary:

Tahmoor Mine lies in the southern part of the Permo-Triassic Sydney Basin, within which the main coal bearing sequence is the Illawarra Coal Measures. Coal is mined from within the Bulli seam. The Bulli seam coal is predominantly a hard-coking coal. In the Tahmoor South Project area, the Bulli coal seam is located approximately 370 to 430 m below the surface and is approximately 1.8 to 3.3 m thick. Two major fault zones exist in the Project area: the Nepean Fault and the Central Fault zones. The presence of these fault zones has constrained the extent of longwalls and defined the mining domain for the proposed development. The Nepean Fault zone is the most significant geological feature. This fault is approximately 350 m wide and trends north-south along the eastern boundary of the area. The Central Fault zone is a smaller fault and trends along the western and southern boundaries.
