BMA Blackwater Mine
Thomas & Coffey Limited
Blackwater Mine was established by the Utah Development Company, the mine’s first load of coal railed in 1967. In 2001, the mine was taken over by BHP and renamed BMA Blackwater Mine. Since then it has produced approximately 450 million tonnes of coal, which is enough to make the steel for 14,151 Sydney Harbour Bridges. At almost 80 kilometres in strike length, it remains one of the longest coal mines in the Southern hemisphere. In 2012, OmTrak was used to manage the construction O&M Manuals and DLP maintenance for the redevelopment of the mines facilities.
