Glencore halts production at NSW underground mine

In Latest News

Glencore has confirmed that production at its New South Wales West Wallsend underground coal mine has been halted due to “geological issues experienced on the current longwall operation last week”.

A spokesperson for the mining company said they are investigating a number of options to resume operations as quickly as possible.

“However, it is expected that production could be affected for some time,” the spokesperson said.

Glencore announced in May that mining at West Wallsend would be completed next year, consistent with the life-of-mine planning.
