{{#badges: CoalSwarm|Navbar-Australiacoal}}The Appin mine is an underground coal mine owned and operated by Illawarra Coal, a subsidiary of BHP Billiton.

In its 2009 annual report, BHP Billiton reported that the Appine mine "commenced in 1962 with longwall mining starting in 1969." The company did not report what the actual production was from the mine (providing only an aggregate figure for the three Illawarra Coal mines) but states that the measured resource for the mine is 113 million tonnes with a total resource of 391 million tonnes.[1] Illawarra Coal's 2008 Sustainability report lists production at the mine as being 1.972 million tonnes.[2]
