The Norwood Project is within Roma North (EPC 1167).
The area is the extension of the highly-promising Pony Plains deposit located adjacent Xstrata's Wandoan Mining Lease application area.
As with the Bundi Project, the primary target is an underground mining resource based on the Macalister Upper (MU) Seam of the Juandah Coal Measures.
An Inferred Resource of 156 Mt has already been identified and an extensive exploration target has also been identified to the west of Norwood with further drilling planned for the future.
The Inferred Resource may form the base for a future mine. While the project is in its early exploration phase, MetroCoal has already commenced the EIS process for Norwood.
