Hunter Valley Operations (NSW)

Hunter Valley Operations (HVO), located 24km north west of Singleton in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, supplies international markets with up to 12 million tonnes of thermal and semi-soft coking coal per annum.

Production commenced at HVO in 1968 at the current West Pit, which was then part of the Howick mine. The Hunter Valley No. 1 mine began production in 1979. In 2000 Coal & Allied merged the Howick and Hunter Valley mines to create Hunter Valley Operations. The Lemington mine, which began production in 1971, was acquired and merged into Hunter Valley Operations in 2001.

In March 2009 Coal & Allied received approval from the NSW Government to replace the multiple approvals under which HVO South operated with a single Project Approval valid for 21 years. The approval included extraction of a further 84 million tonnes of coal and upgrades to a range of infrastructure at the mine.

Hunter Valley Operations is 100 per cent owned by Coal & Allied Industries Limited.
