Anglo American Feels Impact Of Bowen Basin Setbacks

Anglo American has finished the second quarter of 2020 with a drop in production at both the Moranbah and Grosvenor coal mines in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

The company’s metallurgical coal production decreased by 32 per cent from the same quarter in 2019 to 4 million tonnes following two underground accidents at Moranbah and Grosvenor.

Following the suspension of operations at Grosvenor since the ignition event in May, Anglo American revised its 19-21 million tonne metallurgical coal guidance to 16 to 18 million tonnes for the year.
