The Eagle Downs Coal Project (Peak Downs East underground) is a project proposed by Aquila Resources/Bowen Central Coal Management. The project is located 20 km south-east of Moranbah.

The project, which has a notional commissioning date of 2012, is projected to produce 4.6 million tonnes of coking coal per year. The project is projected to cost $988 million to construct.[1]

In an interview with the Courier Mail, Vale's global managing director of coal, Decio Amaral, said that he hoped to submit a $1.3 billion development plan for the Eagle Downs project to Vale's board in mid-2011.[2]
