The Kevin’s Corner project is a proposal for a 30 million tonnes per annum coal mine in the southern Galilee Basin, 160 kilometres west of Emerald1. The project will consist of three underground longwall mines and two open-cut pits. It is owned by Hancock Galilee Pty Ltd, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Indian-owned GVK Group2.
The Kevin’s Corner proposal is located north of GVK Hancock’s Alpha Coal project. It will mine thermal coal for export and has an expected life of 30 years3. Over 8,000 hectares of land would be cleared to make way for the mine and associated infrastructure4.
Kevin’s Corner has all necessary environmental approvals.
