Two Liebherr 9400 excavators and one Liebherr 996B excavator have been ordered to replace the aged equipment currently in use. The new excavators will be delivered and commissioned progressively over the next nine months, which will greatly reduce the risk profile of the current mining equipment and assist the site to efficiently meet its targeted production in future years.

Realm Resources owns 99.9% of the issued capital in Middlemount South, which operates the Foxleigh mine, on behalf of the Foxleigh Coal Joint Venture. Middlemount South (70%) joins POSCO Australia (20%) and Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metals Australia (10%) in the Foxleigh Joint Venture.
