The Duralie Coal Mine is located 80km north of Newcastle in the Gloucester Basin, NSW.
Duralie is an open cut coal mining operation and operated from 2003 to 2021.
Coal Preparation and Transport
Mining operations at Duralie have now ceased. Run Of Mine (ROM) coal from Duralie was previously loaded and railed via a shuttle train to the Stratford Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP) for processing. Product coal was loaded at Stratford rail loading facility and railed to the Port of Newcastle.
Duralie finished coal extraction in 2021 and has now transitioned to closure. The closure of Duralie is consistent with the planned and approved life of mining for the operations, having exhausted its approved commercial coal reserves.
