The Rosedale asset targets coal seams of the Baralaba Coal Measures for an ultra low volatile PCI product which will be present under the entire tenement area;
- Potential for up-thrown blocks and structural repeats of the Baralaba Coal Measures at surface in the east of the tenement area;
- Coal rank is known to increase from south to north within the project giving the potential for a range of of metallurgical and thermal products;
- The asset is close to existing mining operations and infrastructure.
Rosedale was acquired 100% by Vitrinite Pty Ltd in August 2016. The asset consists of 85 sub blocks and was acquired for its potential to hold large volumes of coking/PCI coal resource.
Vitrinite has planned an exploration program targeting up-thrown blocks and structural repeats of the Baralaba Coal Measures in the east of the tenement as a priority.
Target seams for the Rosedale asset are the seams of the Baralaba Coal Measures mined at the Baralaba mining complex to the east. These seams are correlatable with the basin-wide Rangal Coal Measures and are mined extensively throughout Queensland.
The Baralaba Mine produces an ultra low volatile PCI product for the export market. Vitrinite expects that the target seams within the Rosedale asset will produce a similar product.
