The Cows Coal Project is a proposed coal mine located in Queensland’s Bowen Basin about 13km south of Collinsville. It will produce less than 1 million tonnes of coal per year and an expected mine life of 15 years.

The mining lease and environmental authority was granted recently and construction of the intial pit will start in early 2013.

The Cows Coal Project is being developed by Bowen River Coal Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of QCoal.
