Administrative history

The company was formed in April 1912 to acquire the assets of Blair Athol Northern Coal Mines Ltd. Blair Athol is a coalfield and town northwest of Clermont in Central Queensland, which held one of the largest deposits of black coal. The original shareholders were mainly Brisbane business people, accountants, auctioneers, architects and sharebrokers. John Fisher, who was employed by the previous company, was the mine manager. Sometime after his dismissal, J F Hall was appointed supervising manager, with T D Jones as working manager.
