{{#badges:CoalSwarm|Navbar-Australiancoal}} Clyde Park coal project is a thermal coal project proposed by TerraCom.[1]

The site lies on the North eastern edge of the Galilee basin, a large, unmined coal basin in Queensland. There are a number of sites proposed for the Galilee Basin, including Clyde Park. The majority of the coal would be exported to the Asia/Pacific region. TerraCom is a new miner with investments in Australia and Mongolia.[2]

Location

The Clyde Park site lies 70 km north-west of the town of Pentland, Queensland, Australia.[3]
