Coal & Allied manages two open cut mines in the Hunter Valley: Hunter Valley Operations and Mount Thorley Warkworth. The sites are managed by Rio Tinto Coal Australia on behalf of our joint venture partners.
We recognise that operations in the Hunter Valley generate dust and noise that may be visible and audible nearby. We have a strong commitment to continuous improvement in the area of noise and dust management.
In accordance with the requirements of our Health, Safety and Environment management system standard, we continually seek to further noise management by investigating new and emerging technologies, implementing new controls where required, and thoroughly investigating an exceedance or non-compliance event.
Minimising our impacts is a common goal for all of our mine operations staff
