Australian Production Brown Coal

Coal in Australia - Wikipedia

In 2008/09, 487 million tonnes of coal was mined, and 261 million tonnes was exported. In 2009, Australia was the fourth-highest coal producer in the world, producing 335 megatonnes (Mt) of anthracite and 64 Mt of lignite. Australia was the biggest anthracite exporter, with 31% of global exports (262 Mt out of 836 Mt total). 78% of 2009 anthracite production was exported (262 Mt out of 335 Mt total). Australia's global anthracite export share was 14% of all production (836 Mt out of 5,990 Mt total).

Coal - Earth Resources

Victoria boasts a 430-billion tonne brown coal reserve which is a huge portion of the world's coal resources. In 2013-14, total production in Victoria amounted to 57.8 Mt (metric tonnes).

More than 80 per cent of our brown coal (also called lignite) is ...

Lignite - Wikipedia

Lignite, often referred to as brown coal, is a soft, brown, combustible, sedimentary rock formed from naturally compressed peat. It is considered the lowest rank of coal due to its relatively low heat content. It has a carbon content around 25 to 35 percent. It is mined all around the world and is used almost exclusively as a fuel for steam-electric power generation. Lignite is the most harmful coal to human health.

HISTORY OF COAL MINING - Australian Bureau of Statistics

In South Australia brown coal of fair quality was found in 1889 at Kuntha Hill, 110 miles north of Hergott, and at Leigh Creek, on the Great Northern railway line. The discovery of coal in Western Australia dates from 1846, when the mineral was found on the Murray River. Since that year coal has been met with in other localities, but production at the present time is confined to the deposits ...
