What is coal used for?

Coal provides heat to make electricity and steel. It’s still the great driver of the industrial world, fuelling the power stations and steelworks of emerging and fast-growing economies.

Thermal coal is the heat source for around 40% of all electricity generated globally today. India and China’s reliance on imported thermal coal is expected to drive continued growing demand in the long term.

Metallurgical coal is an essential ingredient in blast-furnace steel production and accounts for around 70% of global steel output. Emerging markets, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, continue to drive demand for metallurgical coal — for infrastructure, housing and consumer goods.

Our coal mine operations

Our high quality assets provide a reliable supply of niche products our wide range of customers need, in both metallurgical coal (for steelmaking) and thermal coal (for electricity generation). Our coal portfolio is geographically diverse, with metallurgical coal assets in Australia, and thermal coal assets in South Africa and Colombia.

Our tier one assets include the Moranbah North (88% ownership) and Grosvenor (100% ownership) metallurgical coal mines, both located in Queensland, Australia. In 2019, Anglo American entered into a transaction, expected to complete in 2020, to provide for the equalisation of ownership across our integrated metallurgical coal operations at Moranbah North and Grosvenor through the sale of 12% in Grosvenor mine to the minority owners of Moranbah North.

In South Africa we supply both the export and domestic energy markets. From the Richards Bay Coal Terminal, we export coal throughout the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific regions. In Colombia, we have a one-third shareholding in Cerrejón, the country’s largest thermal coal exporter.

Our operations and coal mines in Australia serve customers throughout Asia and the Indian subcontinent, Europe and South America. The mines are located on the east coast, in well-established locations with direct access to rail and port facilities. At the Dawson mine, semi-autonomous drilling has been introduced and is already improving the productivity and safety of the mine.
