Our coal assets include five mining complexes in the Bowen Basin, incorporating seven open cut and underground operations and four coal handling processing plants.

We manage operations at the Abbot Point Coal Terminal and export coal via Dalrymple Bay, the RG Tanna Coal Terminal and the Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET) in Gladstone.

We employ around 4,750 people across our New South Wales coal business and in 2015 managed the production of more than 53 million tonnes of saleable thermal and coking coal.

We have eight mining complexes across four coalfields: Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Western Districts and Southern Districts. We export coal from the Port of Newcastle and also from Port Kembla.

We are the largest coal producer in New South Wales and one of the largest economic contributors in the Hunter Region.
