Drilling at Citra Bara Prima

Justin Niessner

Drilling at the site is expected to delineate a JORC resource and is targeting two million tonnes to 4.5Mt of coal at a depth of 100m.

The tenement covers an area of 195 hectares and has already been confirmed to have a minimum of two coal seams varying in thickness from 4m to 12m near surface.

A preliminary mine plan is being developed as drilling continues and is expected to help allow the project to move into production as early as the end of the year

At this stage, the mine is planned to produce at a rate of 50,000t per month.

Citra Bara Prima is located 6km southwest of Orpheus’ ADK project and adjacent to other operating coal mines.

A river barge loading facility is less than 2km away.
