Anglo American’s production of export metallurgical coal from its assets in Australia increased by 12% on quarter or 22% on year to reach 6.6 million tonnes over the July-September quarter, according to the company’s quarterly report published on October 22. The miner attributed the rise generally to improved wash plant throughput and equipment productivity.
year-on-year output of met coal was also partly because of the impact of
longwall moves at Moranbah in Queensland in Northeast Australia during last

this year’s Q3, met coal output at its Moranbah North mine surged by 55% on year
