Integrated Infrastructure

Our infrastructure includes state-of-the-art mining equipment, advanced processing plants, and robust logistics networks, all of which are essential for optimizing production and ensuring the seamless delivery of resources to our clients.

Mining Equipment

  • Futura utilises a number of mining techniques including truck/shovel and dozer push using medium to large mining equipment.

  • Futura is focused on efficient and optimised mining practices which will include the use of articulated bucket 30t excavators, and surface miners for the selective extraction of coal and parting material.

Processing Plant

  • Futura utilises the Gregory Crinum Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP) owned and operated by Sojitz.

  • This facility is located only 30km from the Wilton and Fairhill pits, and as a dual stage wash plant is ideally suited to processing the Futura coal.

  • The Gregory Crinum CHPP also includes Train Load Out (TLO) infrastructure used to promote the Futura product coal to the Gladstone Coal Terminals.

Logistics Networks

  • Road and Rail: Futura’s ROM coal is hauled from each pit to the Gregory Crinum CHPP via a combination of private mine roads, and public roads.

  • In conjunction with the local councils Futura is undertaking a large program of road upgrades to ensure safe and sustainable use of the public road networks.

  • Product coal is railed from the Gregory Crinum Train Load Out to the Port facilities at Gladstone for export.

  • Port Facilities: Futura currently utilises the RG Tanna coal terminal to export product coal.

Commitment to Sustainability

  • Environmental Management: Futura implements best practices in environmental management to minimize our ecological footprint.

  • Community Engagement: Active engagement with local communities to ensure that our operations contribute positively to the socio-economic development of the regions in which we operate.
