The Kevin’s Corner project proposes a 30 mtpa underground, open-cut coal mine and other associated infrastructure

Mumbai: GVK Group on Saturday received environmental approval by Australia’s coordinator-general for its $4.2 billion Kevin’s Corner mine project in the Galilee Basin in western Queensland.

This is GVKs’ second coal mine project in Australia.

The Kevin’s Corner project proposes a 30 million tonne per annum (mtpa) underground and open-cut coal mine and other associated infrastructure 65kk north-west of the Alpha township.

“The project would rely on the railway infrastructure of the adjacent Alpha Coal project to transport coal to the Port of Abbot Point, Bowen," the group said in a statement.

In May, 2012 GVK’s Alpha Coal Project received key environmental approval from Queensland government.

In August 2012, GVK’s Alpha Coal project gained federal government approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC).

In March this year, GVK Coal Infrastructure (Singapore) Pte Ltd (GVK Hancock) and Aurizon signed a non-binding term sheet to jointly progress the development of rail and port infrastructure to unlock Galilee Basin coal reserves including GVK Hancock’s Alpha, Kevin’s Corner and Alpha West coal mines and a process to support the next phase of coal growth in the Bowen Basin.
