Queensland Flooding Extent, Coal Mine Distribution (Maps)

January 12, 2011

The extent of flooding in Queensland is simply enormous.  While the distribution of coal mining in south-east and central Queensland is extensive, the geographic scope of the flooding is even more so.

These maps are an effort to assist our readers to understand the geographic distribution of mining operations, supply lines, and inundation.  Queensland is approximately 1500 km across at it’s broadest point, and about 200o km north-south.
