Plan to always maintain two blocks in front. Longwall production NLW2 commenced March 2000. Utilisation of two complete sets of longwall equipment (apart from shields) to reduce longwall moves. Planned move time 24 days, last move completed in 22 days. Oaky North Underground:  Oaky North Underground Resourced to ensure optimum maintenance at low cost Longwall delivering onto high capacity 4,500 tonne per hour belt system for delivery to CPP. Manning levels minimised to cover core functions. Reserves of 40 million tonnes in present area with further reserves in the eastern area Alliance Underground:  Alliance Underground A longwall punch operation mining from final highwalls into otherwise non-recoverable coal Located in the south-west, with volatiles between 28-29% Contractor owned and operated equipment Potential for LW mining until 2004-2005 Raw coal washed in Oaky Creek washplant Oaky Creek Surface Operations:  Oaky Creek Surface Operations Capacity recently upgraded to 1800 tph with the construction of a fourth module Fines circuit upgraded to improve overall metallurgical efficiency Maintenance philosophy in place to achieve 7600 hours availability Open Cut Operations recommenced in July to supplement Raw Coal feed Capacity now 13.5 Mtpa raw coal feed Environmental Initiatives:  Environmental Initiatives Environmental Management System Based on ISO14001 framework Structured to distribute environmental responsibilities throughout all OCC departments Key component is environmental awareness training for all employees and contractors Environmental Initiatives:  Environmental Initiatives Water Management Raw water consumption per tonne of clean coal has reduced by 54% in the last 4 years 75% of water used in the coal preparation plant is from recycled sources Life of mine water management plan and water balance model is updated and reviewed annually Environmental Initiatives:  Environmental Initiatives Rehabilitation OCC uses the Internally Drained Rehabilitation (IDR) technique developed in 1989 Objectives are long term stability,minimise offsite impacts, and final land use of native woodland IDR methodology was approved by the EPA in 1999 Method won the 1999 AMEEF Award Rehabilitation Specifications:  Rehabilitation Specifications BEFORE AFTER Rehabilitation Success:  Rehabilitation Success BEFORE AFTER Environmental Initiatives:  Environmental Initiatives Waste Management Total waste management system implemented November 2001 All waste is segregated and recycled where possible (metal, wood, paper, plastics, oil) Waste tracking and monitoring system used to assess performance against KPI’s Oaky Creek Infrastructure:  Oaky Creek Infrastructure The workforce is housed in the MIM-built town of Tieri, 13km from the mine Rail access by Queensland Rail (QR) to Dalrymple Bay (DBCT), 297km, and Gladstone, 394km QR is state government owned but recent third party access provisions will bring increasing competition Oaky Creek Infrastructure (cont):  Oaky Creek Infrastructure (cont) DBCT is operated by a company jointly owned by the six users DBCT has 2 berths, 2 shiploaders and a current capacity of 43.5 Mtpa. It has 2.4 Mt of stockpile capacity Gladstone is operated by the Gladstone Port Authority, a statutory authority RG Tanna Coal Terminal has 2 berths, 2 shiploaders and a current capacity of 35 Mtpa.
