The Grosvenor coal project is an underground coal mine proposed by Anglo Coal Australia. The project, which is located 8 km north of Moranbah in the northern region of the Bowen Basin, is currently the subject of the feasibility study.
The project, which has a notional commissioning date of 2013, would produce 4.3 million tonnes of hard coking coal. The project would cost $1.1 billion to construct and employ 1000 people during construction and 300 when operating.
On its website Anglo states that the Grosvenor project is a $AUS1.1 billion project which would produce "up to seven million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of run-of-mine (ROM) coal, which would be processed to produce approximately five Mtpa of coking coal for export." The project would be located next to Anglo's Moranbah North mine. The company states that the project will use the longwall mining method to mine coal with an anticipated mine life in excess of 30 years.
