Clermont is a large scale open-cut operation, located approximately 12 kilometres from the town of Clermont in central Queensland.

After commencing operations in 2010, Clermont now produces approximately 12 million metric tonnes of high energy thermal coal with relatively low ash and sulphur using a truck and shovel method.

The low Run of Mine strip ratio (3.2:1) and minimal processing (90% coal does not require washing) combined with the high quality coal, means the mine has a first quartile margin position in the seaborne thermal coal market.

After processing at Clermont, coal is transported by an overland conveyor to the stockpile and rail loading facilities at the nearby Blair Athol mine. The coal is exported primarily through the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal.
