Ensham Resources has been a valued contributor to the Emerald community since 1993. For the past 20 years, we have been proudly supporting regional employment and local businesses.
The mine supports a workforce of approximately 600 people including employees and contractors. Our technical and operational workforce is predominantly drive-in, drive-out, allowing employees to choose where they live and work.
The open-cut and underground mining operation comprises 5 open-cut coal mining pits and an underground mine, with an approved production limit of 4.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).
Open-cut mining is conducted by 2 draglines. Once exposed, the coal is removed by excavators and trucks, crushed and screened for size and then transported via rail to Gladstone Port for shipping.
Ensham Resources is currently progressing plans to expand its underground operations at the Mine, known as the Ensham Resources Expansion Project.
