Located in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales, 20 kilometres north of Singleton, the complex contains the Mt Owen, Ravensworth East and Glendell mines.  The integration of these operations enables all sites to use a single coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP) and infrastructure at Mt Owen Mine.

Glendell Mine is seeking approval to continue current open cut mining to the north of its existing operations through the Glendell Continued Operations Project.


Mt Owen Operations is 100% owned and managed by Mt Owen Pty Limited (Mt Owen) on behalf of Glencore Coal Australia Pty Limited (Glencore). Glendell Operations is 100% owned and managed by Glendell Tenements Pty Limited managing Glendell and Ravensworth East mining areas on behalf of Glencore Coal Australia Pty Limited (Glencore).

Thiess Pty Ltd is contracted by Glencore to operate Mt Owen Mine, excluding the CHPP and associated infrastructure.
