Whitehaven Coal, in its own words ‘the emerging force in the Australian coal mining industry’, has three operating open cut mines in the NSW Gunnedah Basin – Maules Creek, Tarrawonga and Werris Creek – as well as its underground Narrabri mine and two sites under rehabilitation, Sunnyside and Rocglen. The company points out that its run-of-mine (ROM) production is set to grow strongly over the next 10 or so years, from the current 23 Mtpa (million tonnes per annum) to 50 Mtpa, through a combination of greenfield and brownfield developments.
