Welcome to Ulan Coal
Welcome to Ulan Coal Mines Limited (UCML) one of the most established coal mining operations in the western coalfields of NSW. The mining operations at UCML are one of a number of mining assets owned and/or managed by Glencore. We consist of two approved underground mining operations (Ulan No.3 and Ulan West) and an Open Cut (not operating since end 2014). The 21 year conceptual mine plan involves open cut and longwall mining in the Ulan Seam. All associated underground, open cut mining and land management activities within UCML land holdings, as a collective, is referred to as the Ulan Mine Complex.
The proposed extension of the open cut (not currently operating 2015/16), continued Ulan No. 3 underground and Ulan West underground are shown in the figure "Ulan Coal Continued Operations Project Area". A combined production rate of up to 20 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) product coal is proposed for the 21 year mine plan, operations approved to 30 August 2031. The Project will employ approximately 931 people including ancillary contractors when at full production.
