Comments from Whitehaven Coal Managing Director and CEO Paul Flynn:

“Coal prices staged a remarkable recovery over the quarter, responding to increased economic activity as well as continuing supply-side constraints.

“Prices for high-CV thermal are at 10-year highs, and we will begin to see this materialise into strong free cash flow over the coming months.

“Our largest mine, Maules Creek, finished with a solid quarter and demonstrated its full potential over the course of the year, delivering a record annual ROM production.

“Unfortunately difficult geological conditions persisted at Narrabri through the second half and, having now navigated through this area, we are focused on finishing the balance of the panel expeditiously and getting to the change out scheduled for Q2 of FY22.”
