MACH Energy Australia was established to acquire the world class Mount Pleasant thermal coal project from Rio Tinto in 2015. In 2018, MACH Energy formed the Mount Pleasant Joint Venture with Japan Coal Development Australia Pty Ltd (JCDA) acquiring five percent. JCDA, the wholly-owned Australian subsidiary of Japanese Coal Development (JCD) secures stable supplies of high quality thermal coal for high quality low emission thermal coal plants.
The Mount Pleasant Operation currently operates on a seven-day roster from 7am to 7pm.
“We have had an amazing opportunity through this diverse project to grow as a group and a company, both technically and by size.” Chris Nixon, NSW Survey Manager & Registered Mine Surveyor, Fyfe.
