Overview of Operations

Main Content

The Inglenook Project is an exploration area located near Ilford, in the Western Coalfields of NSW, between Lithgow and Mudgee.

Centennial holds three exploration licences in the Western Coalfields, collectively known as Inglenook.

The exploration project area is adjacent to the western rail line, enabling direct access to the Port Kembla coal terminal, with the opportunity to utilise existing infrastructure at either Airly or Charbon.

Inglenook has an estimated total coal resource of approximately 256 million tonnes. An exploration drilling programme is currently underway to ascertain the extent, quality and viability of the coal resource. Six drill holes have been completed out of a total twenty-eight drill sites.

In conjunction with the current exploration drilling programme, environmental and mining studies will be undertaken to determine the feasibility of a future mine.

Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC)

The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act is administered by the Federal Government's Department of Environment which is incorporated into the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Populations and Communities.

The EPBC Act requires any person who proposes to undertake an action that will have, or is likely to have, a significant impact on a matter of national environmental significance to refer that action to the Minister for a decision as to whether assessment and approval is required under the EPBC Act. This decision is referred to as a ‘controlled action’. Where it is deemed a controlled action, the Minister may approve the action and issue conditions of approval
