The mine project is ultimately owned by Glencore. According to the Valeria South Project Environmental Authority Application, the Valeria South project will assist with Glencore’s planning for the broader development of the overall Valeria coal project, which may serve as a source of potential replacement production from the Clermont Open Cut operation, where mining is scheduled to finish around 2026.[1]

The Valeria South mine is expected to open in 2022 and have a lifetime of 15 years.[1]

It is expected to produce approximately 2.1 to 2.5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) run of mine (ROM) with an average of 2.3 Mtpa ROM. This translates to about 1.2 to 1.4 million tonnes per annum of product coal.[1]

In March 2019,Glencore's submitted its Environmental Authority Application for the Valeria South Project.[2]
