Mt Owen Mine produces thermal and semi-soft coking coal for supply to the export markets. The thermal coal product is highly volatile with strong combustion characteristics and has been widely used for power generation as well as for general industrial use. Semi-soft coking coal produced by Mt Owen is used by steel mills for pulverized coal injection and as a component in the coke blend. The coal is low in ash and sulphur with attractive coking properties.
Ravensworth East Mine produces thermal coal for supply to domestic and export markets. No coking coal is mined from Ravensworth East.
Up to 15Mtpa of Run of Mine (ROM) coal will be received and processed at Mt Owen Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP). With an estimated 10Mtpa coming from Mt Owen and 5Mtpa coming from both Ravensworth East and Glendell pits.
