Water is a valuable, shared resource in our community and as such our philosophy is to use as little water as practical. The Baralaba North Mine is located on the northern floodplain of the lower Dawson River. An anabranch of the Dawson River separates Baralaba North from Baralaba Central. The mine has a substantial water allocation from the Dawson River however, due to our significant capture process for mine runoff, we rarely take water from the river.

Working with our community

Mining operations have played an integral part in the development of Baralaba, starting with the underground operations at the turn of the last century.

More recently, Baralaba’s community engagement has been significantly improved.

Baralaba Coal is working diligently to restore and foster relationships with the local community.
