      Low-grade sub-bituminous coal of Late Jurassic age was discovered in during exploration by the Department of Mines and ETSA near Lock in the Polda Basin of central western Eyre Peninsula. The high-ash coal occurs as a number of gently dipping seams interbedded with sand and clay of the Polda Formation, and is confined to a narrow east. largest resources of bituminous coal with the bulk of the production coming from NSW prior to the development of the extensive Bowen Basin coal deposits in Queensland. Queensland is now the largest producer of coal in majority of Australia's brown coal reserves are located and mined in Victoria with most used for electricity.

      The Collie Sub-basin is a pocket of Permian sedimentary rocks with an area of km², enclosed within much older Archean rocks of the Yilgarn Craton, near the town of Collie in southwestern Western Australia., Once considered a unique basin, this area, along with the smaller Wilga and Boyup Sub-basins to the south, are now classified as outliers of the Perth Basin, separated from the main area by . The Perth Basin is a thick, elongated sedimentary basin in Western lies beneath the Swan Coastal Plain west of the Darling Scarp, representing the western limit of the much older Yilgarn Craton, and extends further west and towns including Perth, Busselton, Bunbury, Mandurah and Geraldton are built over the Perth Basin.

The Collie Basin contains significant resources of coal and fresh groundwater. Dewatering is essential for facilitating coal mining. However, this has resulted in significant impacts on the groundwater and dependent environmental values in the Collie Basin. A research into the hydrogeology and groundwater resources of the Collie Basin has been carried out.

This has involved extensive. Collie Basin (Western Australia) The Collie Basin is a intracratonic rift basin, that has a 13 km vertical depostion of brecciaeted sands, marls and clays. The coal seam thickness of the Collie Basin runs from m to 12m. The coal seams are overlayed by a 1,5 km sedimentdeposit.

The Collie Basin coals have a low sulphur and ash content andFile Size: 4MB. At present the Collie Basin of Permian age situated km South-southeast of Perth and covering an area of km 2 is the only active source of steaming coal in Western Australia, Fig 1.

The coal samples for petrological and geochemical study were taken from the Hebe seam of Late Permian age from the Muja Sub-basin, one of the three sub-basins Author: K K Sappal, B H O′ Connor, D J Martin.

These two states are also the largest coal producers. While Australia's mineable black coals range from Permian to Jurassic in age ( to million years old), most of Australia's black coal resources are of Permian age. Australia's principal black coal producing basins are the Bowen (Queensland) and Sydney (New South Wales) Basins.

Locally important black coal mining operations include Collie in Western Australia, Leigh Creek. The Collie Coal Measures and the underlying glacigene Stockton Formation are Permian lithologic units in the small, intracratonic Collie Basin situated near the western margin of the Yilgarn Craton in Western Australia.

Palynological data were obtained from a Cited by: The Early Permian coal samples for the study were obtained from the Vasse Shelf, southern Perth Basin, located approximately km south- west of Perth.

The International Journal of Coal Geology deals with fundamental and applied aspects of the geology and petrology of coal, oil/gas source rocks and shale gas resources. The journal aims to advance the exploration, exploitation and utilization of these resources, and to stimulate environmental awareness as well as advancement of engineering for effective resource management.

Surface subsidence resulting from “total extraction” of coal in the Collie Basin first occured in when Western Collieries Ltd trialled the Wongawilli mining method. Because very little quantitative subsidence data existed for the weak, Permian sediments, a research program was set up prior to the extraction of the first panel.

The objective of the. The Collie Basin consists of two sub-basins as shown in figure 2 which is reproduced from a report on the groundwater resources of the basin.

2. The Collie Basin is 20 km long and about 10 km wide with a maximum thickness of km. The Permian strata are confined within downfaulted blocks underneath a veneer of Cretaceous sediments.Collie is the only developed coalfield in Western Australia and at the present time coal is being produced from six '' collf eries and two open-cuts.
