Curragh is one of a select few independent Australian producers of metallurgical coal. The open cut operation is a reliable, flexible and low-cost residential mine near the town of Blackwater in Queensland.
Curragh provides metallurgical coal for export markets and supplies steaming coal to the Queensland Government’s Stanwell Corporation under a long-term contract.
It has a well-established and geographically diverse customer portfolio with a number of long-standing relationships with world-leading steel-makers.
Curragh mine continues to deliver a strong return on equity and remains a valuable Wesfarmers Resources asset. It has maintained a relatively low cost-base and strong safety record, and will continue to deliver further benefits in those areas.
