The Minerva Mine has reportedly loaded its last train today, with PN's MF16 leaving this afternoon with four 83 class working in Distributed Power.
Owned by Sojitz Coal Mining Ltd and averaging around 1.5-million tonnes/annum of thermal and metallurgical coal since 2005, Minerva is the only traffic source on the former Springsure Branch south from Emerald. Sojitz was planning to shut the mine in 2024.
It also made up most of the tonnage on the Aurizon-owned section of the Central Line between Nogoa and Burngrove. As a result this will be the first significant part of the Aurizon network where there will be no coal haulage - Aurizon instead providing access to Linfox freights and Watco's cattle and grain services.
