About us

Wesfarmers Resources is a significant Australian producer of metallurgical coal, supporting iron and steel-making industries across the globe. Our world-scale open cut mines also help meet society’s electricity needs through the supply of steaming coal for power generation.

Our commitment

Core to how we do business is our relentless commitment to being a reliable, flexible and ethical business – with operating sustainably as a key driver.

Our mining operations

We own and operate the Curragh coal mine near Blackwater in Queensland’s Bowen Basin, and hold a 40 per cent interest in the Bengalla coal mine in New South Wales. Both mines are world-scale, low-cost, open cut producers and the majority of production is exported to Asia.

Our people

At Wesfarmers Resources, we are continuing our efforts to ensure we have a diverse workforce and this has been recognised throughout the industry. Every day, more than 850 people choose to work for us across our two mines, and we are proud of the career opportunities available to them.

Wesfarmers Resources continues to be a valuable contributor to the Wesfarmers portfolio which also includes Coles, Bunnings, Target, Kmart and Officeworks.
