Saleable coal production from New Hope’s Acland, Jeebropilly and Oakleigh mines was 1.82Mt.

Coal sold increased by 23% to 2.035Mt, reflecting advanced shipping timing and additional sales from coal stocks. Coal sales were split 67% export and 33% domestic.

New Hope said coal sales over the second half of the financial year would be lower than the first six months.
