Innovative mining

Our mining operations are based on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Having conducted business since 1982 we have extensive history and experience in both exploration and mining. 

The New Zealand Coal and Carbon group of companies is proud family business, 100% New Zealand owned and operated.

For nearly forty years we have been exploring and mining the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. In that time, we have actively supported our national coal industry by holding leadership positions in the New Zealand Coal Association, the Mines Rescue Trust and Straterra.

We believe in community. We proudly support the clubs, organisations and services our employees and our neighbours depend upon and enjoy.

We believe in safety. Our team of employees and contractors are family and family looks out for each other, no matter the role they play or the mine they work at.

We believe in quality. You can be sure that any coal we mine and transport to you is the highest quality we can offer, no question.
