The Yarrabee open cut coal mine is located approximately 40 km north east of Blackwater in Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

Yarrabee produces ultra low volatile, semianthracite PCI coal, exporting to steelmakers in the Asian region via the Port of Gladstone. The mine is one of a small number of LVPCI mines producing high quality coals located in the Bowen Basin.

The Yarrabee Open Cut Coal Mine is located approximately 40km northeast of Blackwater in Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin, approximately 150km west of Rockhampton and 280km northwest of the Port of Gladstone.

Yarrabee produced total ROM coal of 3.36 million tonnes and 2.81 million tonnes of saleable coal for 2015.

Product coal is road hauled about 37km to the Boonal load out facility on the Blackwater system and then railed to the RG Tanna and Barney Point Coal Terminals in Gladstone for export to customers.

ROM coal is mined from a number of pits, with the majority of coal blended at the site's coal handling preparation plant, which has a capacity of 350 tonnes per hour.

The Yarrabee Coal Mine is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yancoal Australia, acquired as part of Felix Resources Pty Ltd in December 2009.

Production at Yarrabee has grown from a modest 1.5 million tonnes in 2005 to 2.81 million tonnes saleable in 2015.
