Tarrawonga Mine

Production at the Tarrawonga open-cut coal mine commenced in June 2006. The mine produces a mix of low-ash, low-sulfur, low-phosphorus, medium- to high-volatile PCI and semi-soft coking coal and export thermal coal. Resources currently support a mine life of 20 years at a ROM production rate of 2 Mt/year. Approval has been granted to increase ROM production to 3 Mt/year, however, in the short term production is approximately 2 Mt/year (Whitehaven Coal, 2014a). An extension of the Tarrawonga Mine was approved in March 2013 and so is discussed in Section 1.2.3 .
