Extent of the Digital 3D Geological Model of the Latrobe Valley Coal Resource.
This polygon defines the area covered by the 2011 version of the Latrobe Valley Coal Model. The model is intended as a regional scale tool for supporting the management of the resource, matching coal to development opportunities and informing land use planning. It captures a century of coal delineation work in a powerful, flexible and contemporary format. 9086 cores have been modelled (an increase of 641 bores over the 2008 version) over a total area of 4912 km2, including all Gippsland brown coal fields identified in DPI's inventory of coal resources. Seams have been extended into the Seaspray Depression covering the Longford, Boodyarn, Won Wron, Greenmount, Alberton and Gelliondale coal fields; as well as into the Moe Swamp covering the Moe and Yarragon coal fields. The model is based on a pre-mine topography and substantial coal has already been extracted.
