Australia is one of the world’s largest producers and exporter of coal with production estimated at 476.5 million tons (Mt) in 2013, further projected to reach 635.9Mt in 2020, representative of a CAGR of 4.4%. Substantial production over the forecast period is likely due to capacity extensions and new projects. Projects such as the China First coal project, the Alpha coal project, the Wandoan project, and the South Galilee project located in the state of Queensland are some of the largest, with capacities of 40Mt, 30Mt, 22Mt and 13.6Mt respectively. The country’s abundant and high-quality coal deposits are widely distributed across all the country’s states and the Northern Territory.
The report contains an overview of the Australian coal mining industry together with the its growth factors and restraints. It also provides detailed information about production, prices, production by grade, basin and mining methods, reserves, reserves by grade and regions, major producing mines, competitive landscape, major exploration and development projects, consumption, consumption by type and trade.
