{{#badges: CoalSwarm|Navbar-Australiacoal}} Dawson mine is an open cut coal mine located in the Dawson Valley, at the southern end of the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland. The mine produces over 7 million tonnes of coking, soft coking and thermal coal a year which is railed to the Port of Gladstone for export to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.[1]

Anglo states on its website that the mine "has identified reserves of 281 million tonnes of coal, with potential for an additional 125 Mt."[1]

Anglo Coal Australia is currently undertaking an Environmental Impact Statement on an expansion of the mine. See Dawson South for more details.[2]


The mine is owned by the Moura Joint Venture, comprising Anglo American Metallurgical Coal Pty Ltd (51%) and Mitsui Coal Holdings Pty Ltd (49%). The mine is operated by Anglo.[1]
