Sedgman managing director Grant Fraser said the company was “pleased to continue our strong, long-term relationship with QCoal and look forward to assisting with the expansion of the Byerwen mine in a timeframe that optimises QCoal’s benefit”.

Early work has commenced and the project will conclude early next year.
