Description

About Wallarah-2 Coal Project

In 1995 the NSW Government granted Exploration Licenses to the Wyong Areas Coal Joint Venture for the two areas east and west of the F3 on the Central Coast of New South Wales.

In the period since 1995, the Wyong Areas Coal Joint Venture has undertaken extensive programs of exploration, environmental monitoring, environmental assessment, community consultation, technical planning and economic analysis of the Project, leading to its planning approval in January 2018.

Exploration, mine planning and environmental investigations defined significant coal resources beneath both the western areas (including Yarramalong and Dooralong Valleys, Wyong and Olney State Forests, Jilliby State Conservation Area) and surrounding ranges.

The Wallarah-2 Coal Project's planning approval provides for underground mining deep below parts of the western area for a period of 28 years and development of associated surface facilities, principally at Buttonderry and Tooheys Road localities.

About Bells Mountain Pumped Hydro Project

Earlier this year Muswellbrook Shire Council signed a deed making AGL the preferred company to develop a pumped hydro energy storage facility for the Hunter region.

The proposed $300 million, 250 megawatt facility is part of AGL’s renewable energy and storage mix as it prepares to close the Liddell coal-fired power station in 2022.

AGL is investigating the feasibility of several pumped hydro project options in the Upper Hunter as part of a $2 billion investment in new power generation.
