Dawson West coal mine

From Global Energy Monitor

The Dawson West coal project is a proposed thermal coal mine which would lie 20km to the west of the town of Theodore, 80km southeast of Rolleston in southeastern Queensland, Australia.[1]

The coal terminals in the Gladstone region are the likely destination for CMR’s Project export coal.[1]

As of 2022, with no recent updates, the project is presumed cancelled.


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