Yarrabee produces ultra-low volatile, semi-anthracite PCI coal, exporting to steelmakers in the Asian region via the Port of Gladstone.
Yarrabee production was in accordance with forecasts, the operation adjusting product type in the second half of the year to capitalise on increasing price opportunities and market demand for PCI coal.
Yarrabee achieved total ROM coal production of 3.4Mt (2016 0.9Mt) and total saleable coal production of 2.9Mt (2016 3.1Mt).
