Shenhua Watermark Coal Gets the Community Involved

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 6, 2011) - Business Review Australia takes a look at Shenhua Watermark Coal. Shenhua Watermark Coal is a subsidiary of the Shenhua Corporation, the world's leading integrated coal based energy company, and is wholly owned by Shenhua Holdings Australia. With power stations, wind farms, rail lines, ports, and coal liquefaction, the vertically integrated Corporation is able to produce 450 million tons of coal per year. But that's not enough for the Chinese energy heavyweight, and Shenhua is looking to increase its production to 600 million tons per year. That's where Shenhua Watermark Coal comes into the picture.

Established in 2008, Shenhua Watermark is currently in the exploration phase for large coal deposits in the Gunnedah region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Despite already identifying roughly 9 million in recoverable coal reserves, the company is on hold for production until the NSW government processes its new planning orders for the region. In the meantime, the company has made it a point to engage with the local community as much as possible to ensure complete transparency in all business and exploration activities being carried out by Shenhua.
