Coal exports

Coal export facilities are currently being planned to handle a significant volume of coal exports from Bathurst Resources existing and proposed coal mines.[1] The first shipment of coal from Bathurst Resources Cascade mine was dispatched to Port Taranaki from where it will be sent as part of a larger shipment to Asia. Bathurst Resources aims to export approximately 50-75,000 tonnes per annum from the Cascade mine.[2] and is planning on exporting approximately 1-2 million tonnes per annum from the Escarpment mine and the Deep Creek mine. The three mines are a part of Bathurst Resources larger multi-mine Buller Coal Project.[3]
