Welcome To Isaac Plains Coal Mine
The Isaac Plains open cut coal mine is located approximately 7km east of Moranbah, in the Bowen Basin of Northern Queensland, Australia.
Isaac Plains' history dates back to the early exploration conducted initially by Utah Development Company in the 1960's, by Thiess Peabody Mitsui, and Queensland Mines Department in the 1970's, and other smaller exploration companies. These explorers were mainly targeting the Moranbah Measures.
Between 2002 and 2003, Aquila Coal Pty Ltd drilled 26 holes within EPC755, targeting the shallower Rangal Coal Measures.
