Established in 1988, Jellinbah Group is a privately owned independent Queensland based coal company with operations in Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
The group has two operating mines, Jellinbah Mine and Lake Vermont Mine, with a combined production capacity of 14Mtpa. The mines primarily produce metallurgical coals used in the steel making process including hard coking coal and low volatile PCI coal.
JELLINBAH COAL MINE
Jellinbah Mine is located on the Tropic of Capricorn, near Bluff and the product coal is hauled by rail to the Port of Gladstone, approximately 300 km from the mine.
The mine has been in operation since 1989. It is an open cut operation with overburden drilling and blasting, followed by conventional removal with truck and shovel and dozer push.
Jellinbah Coal is a low volatile bituminous coal with high specific energy and low ash. With these properties it is ideally suited to pulverised coal injection and special coal boilers.
The mine has a current production capacity of approximately 5Mtpa.
Jellinbah Group has a 70% interest in the Jellinbah operation and Marubeni Coal and Sojitz Development each hold 15% interests.
LAKE VERMONT COAL MINE
Lake Vermont Mine is located near Dysart and product coal is hauled by rail to the Port of Gladstone and Abbot Point Coal Terminal.
Lake Vermont’s first shipment was in February 2009. Jellinbah Group appointed Thiess Mining as the operators of the Lake Vermont mine. The mine is an open cut operation, with overburden drilling and blasting followed by conventional removal with truck and shovel and dozer push.
Lake Vermont produces hard coking coal and mid volatile PCI coal.
The mine infrastructure was expanded in 2012/13 and from October 2013 has been operating with a production capacity of 9Mtpa.
Jellinbah Group has a 70% interest in the mine, with Marubeni Coal, Sojitz Development and AMCI each holding 10% interests.
