Clyde Park coal project

From Global Energy Monitor

Clyde Park coal project was a thermal coal project proposed by TerraCom in Queensland, Australia.[1]

The Clyde Park coal project has since combined with the Hughenden coal mine (formerly called White Mountain Project) and Pentland coal mines to form the Northern Galilee coal project.[2]


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

Coal Mine Background

In 2012 Guildford Coal applied for a license for Clyde Park.[4]

TerraCom was formerly called Guildford Coal, changing its name in November 2015.[5] The site lies on the Northeastern 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.[5]
