1.2.2 Current activity and tenements


As at May 2015, there were 25 operating mines and complexes in the Hunter subregion. Of these there are seven complexes: Bulga, Donaldson, Hunter Valley Operations, Mount Arthur, Mount Owen, Ravensworth and Ulan. Six mines are currently either in care and maintenance or recently closed. Of these, one mine, Newstan Colliery is proposing two new projects: the Newstan Extension Project and the Northern Coal Logistics Project that will extract coal for a period of 21 years. No coal seam gas is currently produced in the Hunter subregion.
