The Greater Hobart-Southern Region of Tasmania is not rich in minerals. A thermal coal supply is located at Hamilton, north west of Hobart. Approximately four to six years supply of coal, or about 600 kt, await production. As at November 2002, a mining lease over the deposit was to change hands, from Kimbolton Coal Company Pty Ltd to Australian Cement Holdings Pty Ltd.


Information about the proposed acquisition of Kimbolton Coal Company Pty Ltd by Australian Cement Holdings Pty Ltd (November 2002) is available from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission web site.
