Company Information

Bickham Coal Company is jointly owned by the Cant and Foster families. The Foster family previously played a role in the contract earthmoving, mining and engineering spheres, while the Cant family has mining interests in East Maitland and Singleton.

Each family owns a 50% share in the business, making Bickham Coal Company a wholly Australian and Hunter Valley owned and managed company.

Bickham Coal Company holds exploration licences approximately 12km south-east of Murrurundi where a potential underground resource of 210 million tonnes of low-ash thermal coal had been identified. Land was purchased in the area of exploration in 2002 and from a pocket of that land a bulk sample of 25,000 tonnes of coal was extracted and shipped to Japan in 2004.

Key personnel playing integral roles during and since the bulk sample project can be viewed here.
