Stuart Clague said “Having worked with Peabody for the last decade, we are delighted to have advised Peabody on the sale of the Millennium coal mine to Stanmore and M Resources.”

The Johnson Winter & Slattery team was led by Energy & Resources Partners Bruce Adkins and Stuart Clague assisted by Senior Associate Jarrod Wilksch and Associate Haerim Nam. Finance Partner Craig Wappett also assisted on the royalty arrangements.
