Coal Mine Background
In 2011 Guildford Coal described this site as its, "flagship asset". During May 2011, Guildford Coal acquired a 51% interest in the White Mountain Project, via a heads of agreement signed with Tiaro Coal. The White Mountain Project's assets have been subsumed into the Hughenden application. Guildford Coal has paid $3.3m upfront and committed approximately $5m on exploration and development from this project. The intention is to use the Mount Isa to Townsville rail line to export coal via the Port of Townsville.
Guildford Coal has been renamed TerraCom.
