A final decision on the future of the Stockton Mine will be made by June.

Mine owner Solid Energy is in voluntary administration and will spend the next few years selling its assets if creditors agree to freezing its debts.

Company chief executive Dan Clifford said a decision about the Stockton mine's future under consideration.

The company was doing everything it could to make Stockton as attractive as possible to potential buyers, he said.
