The Lenton Joint Venture to acquire Burton mine

Global Mining Review,


Peabody has entered into an agreement to sell the majority of its Burton mine and related infrastructure to the Lenton Joint Venture for approximately US$11 million.

The Lenton Joint Venture, of which New Hope Coal is a 90% participant, will assume the reclamation obligations associated with the assets being acquired by the Lenton Joint Venture, reducing Peabody's asset retirement obligation by approximately US$53 million while also releasing an estimated US$30 million of restricted cash.

The Burton mine, located in Queensland's Bowen Basin, entered a care, maintenance and rehabilitation phase in December 2016.

   

The Lenton Joint Venture controls mining tenements that adjoin the Burton mine.

The transaction is conditional on a number of regulatory and other requirements and completion is expected to take place in the first half of 2018.
