Cook is an underground metallurgical coal mine next to the Blackwater mine in the southern Bowen Basin. Cook was closed by Xstrata in 2006 and reopened by Caledon in 2007. In 2011, Guangdong Rising Assets Management (GRAM) acquired the previous owner, Caledon, by way of a scheme of arrangement. In 2017 Cook was purchased by Bounty Mining after being placed in administration and the mine suspended. Cook operates within five mining leases, namely ML1768, ML1769, ML1779, ML1799 and ML7357.
