Rocglen Mine

Production at the Rocglen open-cut coal mine commenced in November 2008. The mine has an average run-of-mine[1] (ROM) coal production rate of approximately 1.2 Mt/year (permitted to 1.5 Mt/year) and produces medium- to high-ash, low-sulfur, low-phosphorus, medium- to high-volatile export thermal coal. Following a review of the mine plan in early 2013, Rocglen has reserves in place to support a mine life until approximately 2016 (Whitehaven Coal, 2014a).
