  • "Coal is Back" - Vitrinite in the Australian Financial Review
    We were very excited to be featured in an Australian Financial Review article this week supporting our opinion that coal is back. The article titled, "'People thought we were crazy': coal is back as explorers get lucky in the Bowen Basin." is a snapshot of the coal industry in Australia at present pointing to a number of positives, including the work done by Vitrinite over the last six months.

    Coal is back!

    "There is a general buzz in our industry," Mr Williams said in an interview with The Australian Financial Review. "People would like to see the price steady and be a bit more consistent for more investors pour in. But the general consensus is we have hit bottom and things are looking up."(M.Ludlow - AFR.com). This is certainly exciting time for Vitrinite and we look forward to more good news to come. To read the full article, follow the link below:

  • Karin Basin Maiden JORC Code Resource
    Vitrinite Pty Ltd is pleased to announce that an initial JORC2012 Inferred Resource of 123Mt has been confirmed within the company’s Karin Basin Asset, and a revised exploration target of 340 to 800Mt. The exploration drilling undertaken to achieve this result covers only a tiny fraction of the tenement area. The exploration program has identified significant seams with thicknesses up to 5 metres (16.25 ft) with some areas showing structurally stacked accumulations of coal up to 16 metres (52 ft). The coal quality, with fluidity reaching higher than 30,000, makes it the highest fluidity coking coal in Australia, and among the highest in the world.
