The Takitimu mine is located near the town of Nightcaps in Southland.
Takitimu contains one of the few remaining pockets of sub-bituminous coal in the region, where coal has been produced for over 140 years.
We’re currently developing the Black Diamond block, an extension of the Takitimu mine that will provide access to 1.8 Mt of coal. This will underpin the local economy – providing jobs and supplying energy to local schools, hospitals, food businesses and dairy processing plants for years to come.
We’ve also acquired the nearby New Brighton exploration permit. This permit is in close proximity to the Takitimu mine and is connected by the same railway line. This location has the potential to unlock more high-grade sub-bituminous coal and this has the potential to substantially boost our Southland operations.
