Coal transferred to the surface from the underground operation is fed into a Bradford Breaker, conveyed to a 2000t product load out bin and loaded into haul trucks. Haul trucks transport the coal via an internal private haul road from West Wallsend Colliery to the Macquarie Coal Preparation Plant for processing.
Process coal is conveyed onto a product coal stockpile. Product coal is reclaimed via a stacker/reclaimer and conveyed to a rail load out bin. Product coal is then railed to the Port of Newcastle for export.
