The JORC coal resource estimate for Stanmore Coal’s Clifford Project has increased by 67% on the back of further exploration work conducted last year. The project resource now stands at 620 million t.
The exploration work was conducted in conjunction with Stanmore’s funding partner, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals Corp. (JOGMEC) and included 29 rotary holes and 16 partially cored holes within the Grange and Liberty areas of the Clifford Project.
The Clifford Project is located in Queensland’s Surat Basin next to Glencore’s Wandoan coal project. It contains thermal coal with the potential for opencast extraction.
The next phase in project development with JOGMEC will include desktop studies to progress the mining and infrastructure assessment of the project.
