Locally important black coal mining operations include Collie in Western Australia, Leigh Creek in South Australia and Fingal and Kimbolton in Tasmania. Brown coal occurs in South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and Victoria (Figure 3.4), predominantly in
Coal reserves are discovered through exploration. Modern coal exploration typically involves extensive use of geophysical surveys, including 3D seismic surveys aimed at providing detailed information on the structures with the potential to affect longwall operations, and drilling to determine coal quality and thickness.
The top five largest coal miners in Australia are BHP, Glencore, Yancoal, Anglo American, Peabody Energy and Whitehaven Coal. The vast majority of thermal and metallurgical coal produced in Australia is exported to Japan, Taiwan, Korea, India,
