The Dawson West Project area is located 20km to the west of the town of Theodore, 80km south-east of Rolleston in south eastern Queensland. The Project is situated over the Surat and Bowen Basin.
CMR has successfully completed 46 boreholes with a total of 10,340m drilled.
Inferred JORC Resource of 852Mt, of which 184Mt is Indicated and 688Mt Inferred, with an exploration target of 2 Billion tonnes. Coal is export quality thermal high volatile bituminous type.
CMR Coal & LDO introduces the Dawson West Thermal Coal brands
The Dawson West Thermal Coal offers a high calorific value* coal at a Newcastle Premium Thermal Product quality ash value.
Two separate products for the “J” & “M” Seams will be produced (low fluorine and standard brands respectively), with high ash fusion temperatures and low levels of ash chemistry elemental oxides minimising operational difficulties such as slagging and fouling.
The coal is easy to grind (high HGI**) offering minimal energy input requirements for pulverisation in firing.
Further; low total sulphur and trace element outcomes will provide a product that assists in meeting emissions regulations for coal combustion products.
The Dawson West Thermal products will offer a cost effective and efficient option for power generation that will fit well with your fuel source requirements.

Proximity to Infrastructure
The coal terminals in the Gladstone region are the logical destination for CMR’s Project export coal, with lower rail costs than alternate coal terminal destinations. The Fitzroy Coal Terminal could offer an easier route to market if the barging operation can get the required environmental approvals, and offers the prospect of a shorter rail haul and lower terminal capital cost. It is possible that two rail load-out points will be constructed on the Project, one located at Palmgrove Creek EPC 2427 and one at Devils Nest EPC 2426, each with a different rail route option.
Palmgrove Creek (EPC 2427) – The new Palmgrove Creek spur line would be linked to the existing Moura Coal Rail System (20km north east of EPC 2427), where it services the Anglo Coal Dawson mine near the town of Moura.
Devils Nest (EPC 2426) – The new Devils Nest spur line would be linked to the proposed Surat Basin Rail System (18km east of EPC 2426) and will provide the opportunity of sharing rail infrastructure costs with other mining operations.
