Clifford coal project

From Global Energy Monitor

The Clifford coal project is a proposed opencut thermal coal mine.[1] The proposed site lies in an area heavy with mining propsals in the Surat Basin, north west of Wandoan, Queensland, Australia.[1]

The Stanmore Coal website suggests that the coal would be exported via the Port of Gladstone to Japanese power stations.[1]


The image below shows the exact location of the proposed mine.[1]
