Coal miner Whitehaven Coal’s run-of-mine (ROM) production for the full year ended June has exceeded its expectations, following a record year from its Maules Creek mine.

ROM production for the full year had been estimated at between 21.8-million and 22.8-million tonnes, however, Whitehaven on Thursday announced that full-year ROM production had reached 23.2-million tonnes.
