Investing in our People and our community.
We invest in our people, and we invest in the community. Having a local workforce provides a range of local economic benefits for the communities where we operate.
We also provide significant investment in our community through the Bloomfield Group Foundation. The Foundation has been supporting our local community since 2006, providing support for young and vulnerable people, funding for medical and health related research and other programs that enrich Hunter Valley communities.
The Bloomfield Group is committed to strong environmental practices. Our innovative methods of mine management and rehabilitation provide and support post-mining land use, including extensive cattle grazing that occurs on Bloomfield land today.
Rix’s Creek Mine
The mine incorporates both the Rix's Creek South and Rix's Creek North operations. It produces both thermal coal and high quality, semi-soft coking coal primarily for overseas customers. This high quality coal asset includes a Rail Loop and two Coal Handling & Preparation Plants. In addition to its own production, the mine provides coal washing and bulk handling services for another producer.
