Assets > Vulcan Mine
Vitrinite acquired the Vulcan Mine asset on 17 September 2018. Two (2) phases of drilling have now been carried out including the most recent ‘Geostatistical Grid’ drilling for JORC Measured in both the Vulcan South area and extensive Highwall Mining Resources in the North Eastern portion of the Vulcan Tenements.
We are proud to be a part of Queensland’s mining sector and significantly contribute to the state’s economy. Vulcan Mine contains multiple target coal seams with premium hard coking coal properties.
The major coal bearing German Creek/Moranbah Coal Measures are present on tenement along the eastern edge. Significant mesa hills formed by highly resistant sandstones have also provided target coal seams throughout the centre of the tenement.
The Back Creek Group also overlies potential Blair Athol Coal Measure type deposits throughout the western extents of the tenement. The area is characterised by reasonably benign regional structures with minor local deformation.
“Vitrinite’s “Vulcan” deposit in the world renown coking coal German Creek Seam Sequences, possesses coal quality characteristics consistent with premium hard coking coal.
That is, comparable outcomes for chief coking coal properties such as Volatile Matter (premium low vol), Crucible Swelling Number (CSN) and Gieseler Fluidity for chosen product ash outcomes.
Coking coal characteristics as described above within the German Creek Seam sequence are usually only observed in well established mines and major mining corporations associated resources and deposits and is exceedingly rare if ever noted in newly developed deposits.”
