Narrabri mine production guidance lowered

Monday 9th of January 2017 11:18:07 AM



Production guidance has been lowered at Whitehaven Coal’s Narrabri mine in NSW by about 6% after encountering “adverse geotechnical conditions” at the site.

Specific details have not been provided by the company but it has been said the revised guidance was a result of production impacts associated with managing the adverse conditions.

Whitehaven now expects its lowest cost and most productive mine to produce between 7.5 to 7.8 million tonnes of coal in 2016/17, down from its previous estimate of 8.0 to 8.3 million tonnes.

The company insisted it is still on track to achieve overall full-year production guidance of 20 to 22 million tonnes despite the issues at Narrabri and the impact of earlier wet weather.

The miner also said sales of metallurgical coal jumped to 22% of total sales in the December quarter, compared to its normal average of 16% in the previous three months.
