Coal Projects

Metro Mining’s 4 billion tonne thermal coal resource in Queensland’s Surat Basin is one of Australia’s largest.

Metro's thermal coal resource in the Surat Basin is ideal as a feedstock for power stations due to its high quality and low sulphur however the company stopped work on its tenements in 2013 due to the depressed coal market and delays in rail infrastructure to Queensland’s Surat Basin.  All coal tenements are in good standing and Metro is actively seeking opportunities to create value from these assets.
