New Hope currently has two open cut coal mines, one in the Darling Downs and one in the Hunter Valley: New Acland, north of Oakey in Queensland, and Bengalla, west of Newcastle in New South Wales.
The Company also has three previous operations that are currently undergoing rehabilitation in the West Moreton region - Jeebropilly, New Oakleigh and Chuwar.
We export Tivoli brand coal, which produces low nitrous oxides and carbon dioxide emissions and has low sulphur content, making it one of Australia's cleanest burning coals. Coal mined and sold by New Hope is recognised by independent experts as being one of the lowest greenhouse gas producing coals in the world. This superior environmental performance provides an added strength as environmental management becomes increasingly critical.
Our objective is to increase Australian production through existing resource development, new resource exploration and acquisitions. To this end, our current mining operations are complemented by investment in an extensive exploration program. Our competitive advantage is anchored in our ability to manage each step in the coal chain, from exploration and mining through to delivery for our customers via our port operations.
Bengalla Mining Company, located four kilometres south west of Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, supplies international markets with thermal coal.
The New Acland Coal Mine, owned and managed by New Acland Coal Pty Ltd, a New Hope Group company, has played a key role in the Darling Downs region as an employer and economic contributor since it began operation in October 2002.
Bridgeport is successfully developing reserves and increasing production through focussed technical analysis of its producing assets with the application of modern seismic, drilling and completion practices. At the present time, the Company's oil fields are producing a total of approximately 1,100 bopd.
Queensland Bulk Handling (QBH) is Brisbane's leading coal export terminal. The facility was commissioned in 1983 and has since gained an international reputation as one of the nation's most reliable, efficient and quality assured coal export terminals. QBH is a despatch port.
New Hope believes that mining and agriculture can exist together.
Progressive rehabilitation is a core part of the detailed Environmental Management Plan.
