The Sarum Coal Project is a coal open cut and underground mine project proposed by Xstrata Coal. The project is located 20 km south of Collinsville.

The project, which is subject to a prefeasibility study, has a notional commissioning date of 2014.[1]

It has been reported in The Australian that documents submitted to the federal Environment Department indicated that the company hopes to produce 5 million tonnes of coal per annum from the project. It also reported that the company hopes to commence mining in 2011 or 2012.[2]
