Millennium Mine is located in Queensland’s Bowen Basin and produces coking and Pulverized Coal Injection (PCI) coals. The mine achieved 2013 sales of 3.4 million tons.
Millennium provides a low-ash coking coal and low- to mid-volatile PCI coal to customers in Japan, Korea, China and India. The surface mine is operated under contract by Downer EDI Mining using conventional truck and excavator mining methods. The coal is railed to the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal, near Mackay for shipping.
With Millennium located adjacent to BHP Mitsui Coal’s Poitrel project, Peabody and BHP Mitsui Coal have agreed - through the Red Mountain Joint Venture - to share coal infrastructure with a total annual product capacity of 6 million metric tons.
