REDUCED port allocations at the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal have led Rio Tinto Coal Australia to declare force majeure at its Hail Creek and Blair Athol mines in Queensland.

In a statement released by the company today, Rio Tinto said its allocation through the terminal for the first half of next year will be 1.2 million tonnes.

This will be divided between Hail Creek, which will export 500,000t, and Blair Athol, which will export 700,000t.

According to Rio Tinto, this amounts to a first-quarter allocation reduction of 4.1Mt and prevents the company from fulfilling its coal contract obligations for the first half of the year.
