QCoal is coal mining company established by Chris Wallin in 1989. The company is based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. QCoal and its subsidiaries own or co-own five mines within the Bowen Basin.[1]

QCoals coal is expected to be exported via Abbot Point using the Alpha Coal Project jointly owned by GVK and Hancock Prospecting.[2]

QCoal owns and operates the Sonoma Mine at Collinsville. Plans to divert nearby Coral Creek to extend the life of the mine have been criticised because they were not in the original development application and because of the potential to create long-term damage to the groundwater aquifer.[3]
