2015 Annual Report – A Year of Delivery

Whitehaven has published our 2015 Annual Report which articulates our business, results and objectives to our key audiences, focusing on important issues and maintaining our commitment
to address and report on our responsibilities and actions.

This report demonstrates our commitment to be:

  • A leading producer of some of the world’s highest quality coal
  • A company that has locally-based employees wherever possible
  • A proud member of and leading employer in the north west NSW region
  • A provider of stable and secure employment opportunities for local Aboriginal people.

There were many highlights this year that bring us closer towards achieving our goal of creating the premier independent listed coal producer in Australia:

  • Significantly improved safety performance with a 35% reduction in the TRIFR to 9.2 at the end of the year
  • Record ROM and saleable coal production exceeding targets
  • Narrabri becoming one of the most productive longwall underground mines in Australia establishing several new production records
  • First coal railed from Maules Creek three months ahead of original schedule
  • Maules Creek capex below budget
  • Construction at Maules Creek almost complete at year end with the mine declared commercial from 1 July 2015
  • Sustainable cost reductions achieved at all operating mines through operational initiatives and changes
  • Refinancing our secured lending package
