The Mitchells Flat coal project area is located approximately 15 kilometres northwest of Branxton and 12 kilometres east of Singleton in the Hunter Valley Coalfield of New South Wales.

On its website, Xstrata Coal states that "plans for the development of an underground coal mine and associated infrastructure were approved in 1991 and a mining lease granted in 1993. Mitchells Flat has Indicated Resources estimated to be 112 million tonnes, and Inferred Resources estimated to be 160 million tonnes. The mine will be able to produce steaming coal and soft coking coal."[1]
