Curragh chases coking coal
Overall production for the year heading in one direction.
Wednesday 25 October 2017  

Management at Curragh has focussed its energy on metallurgical coal over the last three months, with thermal coal production down nearly 13% from the previous quarter.

The drop in thermal coal production was despite increasing overburden removal by nearly 5% and coking coal production by almost 4%.

“Metallurgical coal production of 2,119,000 tonnes was 3.9 % higher than the previous quarter, and steaming coal production of 887,000 tonnes was 12.6 % lower than the previous quarter due to above average steaming coal production in the prior quarter,” they reported today.

However, despite the quarterly aberrations, overall production for the year is up across all coal types with metallurgical coal production increasing by 31.9 % and steaming coal production up 13.1 %.

In the preceding quarter, total coking coal production was down around 10%, while thermal coal increased by around 14%.
