Our coal mine operations

We are the world’s third largest exporter of metallurgical coal and our operations serve customers throughout Asia, Europe and South America. Our tier one assets include the Moranbah North (88% ownership) and Grosvenor (100% ownership) metallurgical coal mines, both located in Queensland, Australia.

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.
