Australian Coal Association
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Australia and coal|
The Australian Coal Association (ACA) is an industry lobby group that represents "the interests of the black coal producers in Australia - located predominantly in New South Wales and Queensland, the States that produce around 97 per cent of Australia's black coal."
