Bulga Open Cut
Bulga Open Cut is a truck and shovel operation targeting the Redbank, Wambo, Blakefield, Glen Munro and Woodlands Hill seams of the Whittingham coal measures.
In December 2014, Bulga Open Cut received approval to continue operations until 2035.
Bulga Underground ceased operating in May 2018. We are retaining mining approvals to support any future mining options.
Mining started at Bulga Underground at South Bulga in 1992, moving to Beltana in 2001 and finally to the Blakefield South operation in 2008. It was one of Australia’s highest producing underground mines.
