The Bloomfield Open Cut mine is located south of East Maitland and is one of the Hunter Valley’s oldest continuous running open cut operations.

Through steady growth and innovation, the Bloomfield mine continues to produce quality coal products and employs around 90 mining personnel

including Mining and Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP) staff.


Under Project Approval 07_0087, the Bloomfield Open Cut mine is approved to extract 1.3 million tonnes of Run of Mine (ROM) coal per annum.

Approved hours of operation are 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

The mining technique is a multi seam, multi bench system, mining up to 13 seams or splits, utilising a range of heavy earthmoving equipment to

deliver the run-of-mine coal to the onsite washery. Coal is railed to Newcastle’s Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS). Bloomfield is a founding

member and current shareholder in PWCS.
