Comments from Whitehaven Coal Managing Director and CEO Paul Flynn:

“Despite drought, bushfires and COVID-19 it was great to finish the year so strongly and achieve our ROM and managed sales guidance.

“We recorded our best ever safety result – 4.13 TRIFR – which is a credit to the team and the strong safety culture we are building across all sites.

“Our Vickery Project is now in the final stages of the NSW Government’s evaluation process and we expect a decision within weeks.

“Against an uncertain global economic backdrop Whitehaven is focused on optimising existing operations and observing disciplined capital management.”
