How we create value

Our business is built on a cost-efficient, target-driven, outsourced mining model. We operate on a “lean and mean” basis, with a small head office team supporting our decentralised mine management with specialist disciplines and administration. This management structure means we are adept at quick and effective decision-making. We focus on realising group-wide synergies wherever possible to enhance our efficiency and ensure our cost base is reduced.

Our vision

To grow a safe and sustainable coal mining business that serves the best interests of all our stakeholders.

Our values

Safety, responsibility, authenticity, respect, delivery, accountability, relationships and team work.
