The Company has already embarked on an aggressive two-year exploration and development program, delivering JORC resource statements (Indicated and Inferred) for both Cooroorah and Isaac River, with a planned drilling program aimed at delivering a maiden resource statement for Hillalong.

The success of the maiden drilling program at Isaac River as resulted in the Company focussing its efforts on fast tracking Isaac River’s development.


Isaac River

(MDL 444 and EPC 830, 100%)
The Project covers an area of 14 km2 and is located in the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland, approximately 30 km west of Moranbah and 130 km southwest of Mackay.  The Maiden Resource Statement for Isaac River, stands at 5.3Mt, which includes 4.2Mt of Indicated, open cut resources and 1.1Mt of Inferred, underground resources. BHP Mitsubishi Alliance’s (“BMA”) Daunia Mine is located to the immediate west, and Peabody’s Moorvale West resource is located to the immediate north of the Project. EPC 830 occurs south of MDL 444 and abuts Peabody’s Olive Downs North Project (subject to a transaction with Pembroke Resources) and is approximately 3km North of Rio Tinto’s Winchester South project.


(MDL - 453, 100%)
Cooroorah is located directly down dip of Wesfarmers’ Curragh mine and MDL162 and is targeting the Aries, Castor, Pollux and Pisces seams from the Rangal coal measures as mined by Curragh and the abutting Jellinbah mine. he total Mineral Resource estimate is estimated at 177Mt, of which 96Mt (54%) is classified as Indicated and 81Mt (46%) as Inferred, of which the Mammoth seam is estimated to be a total of 60Mt, comprising 38Mt as Indicated and 22Mt as Inferred.


(EPC 1824, 100%)
Hillalong is located proximate to Rio Tinto’s Hail Creek Mine and Elphinstone Project in the Northern Bowen basin. The Project hosts the Hynds seam in the Rangal Coal Measures which has demonstrated the ability to yield a high quality coking coal in the region. The Company has estimated an “Exploration Target” in accordance with the JORC Code (2012) of between 61Mt and 409Mt, of which open cut targets represent between 26Mt and 54Mt.  BCB plans to test this Exploration Target with a maiden drilling programme to commence in Q3 or Q4 of calendar 2019.


Comet Ridge

(EPC 1230, MLA 700005, 100%)
Comet Ridge is an advanced, shallow open pit project with a 57Mt JORC Resource shallower than 50 meters. The Project has received Environmental approval in August 2016 and has an advanced Mine License Application to extract coal from the Triumph and Fairhill seams in the Fairhill measures. Comet Ridge is well positioned in terms of infrastructure and potential synergies with other projects.

Joint Venture

(BCC 15%, Stanmore Coal 85%)
The Project hosts a 33Mt JORC Resource in the sought after German Creek seam which is mined at the neighboring Kestrel Mine (Rio Tinto) and proximate Gregory Crinum Mine (BHP/Mitsubishi Alliance). Previous exploration confirmed the potential to produce a high yielding coking coal and further upside potential to increase the size of the Resource.

Joint Venture

(BCC 5%, Stanmore Coal 95%)
The Project is abutting Ensham mine and is targeting shallow coking coal from the Burngrove Measures. Previous exploration results will be converted into a 2012 JORC compliant Resource, with further upside identified from the occurrence of shallow coal in the Fairhill Measures found in the East of the tenement.
