Tasmanian coal is relatively high in ash content which makes it unsuitable for export, although it is satisfactory for local industry. Run-of-mine coal is raw coal that has been mined and not yet processed (washed and separated) by the mine’s washplant.
Coal is produced by the Cornwall Coal Company out of three sites: the Duncan Colliery in the Fingal Valley; Cullenswood open cut, near St Marys; and Kimbolton Coal at Hamilton. Coal production for these mines totalled 504,674 tonnes in 2003-04. A total of 61 people were employed in mining, processing and administration, with a further 17 contractors employed in open-cut operations and raw coal transport.
