The key features of the Carmichael project include:

  • Multiple open-cut pits and underground operations, with a 60-year operating life;
  • Five mine infrastructure areas;
  • Coal handling and processing plant;
  • Heavy industrial area and water-supply infrastructure;
  • A 388-km standard gauge rail line;
