Anglo Pacific said as it does not operate the mine, it cannot guarantee these forecast increases will eventuate, however, if the increase in production is achieved, it will, subject to prevailing coal prices, lead to a significant increase in income from Kestrel this year for the company.

Julian Treger, Anglo Pacific’s chief executive officer commented: "While we are cognisant that this is a forecast, it is extremely encouraging news for Anglo Pacific's largest income contributor and for the Group's overall income expectations for 2019, as previously stated in our Q4 2018 trading update."
