Operations include both underground and open cut mines producing thermal, coking and semi soft coal products. Xstrata manages over 100 million tonnes of coal per year, most of which is exported. Thermal coal is used to generate electricity where coking coal (or metallurgical coal) is used in the production of steel.

With mining obviously having some impact on the environment, Xstrata aims to minimise this by rehabilitating areas they disturb during operations and preserve or restore environments around their mines.

Some ways they manage this accountability is by-
  • restoring mine areas to conditions as much as possible before the mining started
  • use of renewable energy
  • water efficiency
  • waste management to avoid contaminating the land
  • researching ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions
  • are a major contributor to the Coal 21 voluntary industry fund for development of Australian clean coal technologies
