Springvale Extension

Main Content

Springvale proposes to extend its current underground mining operations, within its current approved Mining Lease and Exploration Licence areas, to the east and the southwest of its existing operations.

Springvale's current development consent will expire in 2015.  Accordingly, Centennial is seeking a renewal in order to continue mining beyond 2015.

Under the consent renewal, Springvale will continue to extract up to 4.5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of ROM coal from the Lithgow Seam using the existing screening plant and overland conveyor system for delivery to Western Coal Services.

The project will allow the mine to continue operating and secure local jobs, while the local and regional community will also continue to benefit from the mine's positive economic contribution.

Community Consultation

Consulting with our communities and keeping them informed of developments at the mine is an important component of our community engagement program. We aim to provide updated project information to our local communities in a variety of ways, which may include:

  • Community Consultative Committees;
  • community information sessions and open days;
  • face-to-face door knocks;
  • regular advertisements in local newspapers;
  • newsletters; and
  • letter box drops.
