Moolarben Coal

Over 1,900 people streamed through the gates at Moolarben Coal in March to experience what it’s like ‘at the coalface’.

Across two weekends employees, contractors and their families went through Moolarben’s gates to get a firsthand look at the mining operation heading along to pit tours,seeing excavators, trucks, loaders, drills, the coal preparation plant and underground mining equipment displays.

There were plenty of activities in the kids’ fun zone plenty of food and refreshments for everyone thanks to the local Lions Club, sweets by Workin’ Beans Coffee Van, ice cream by Dippin Dots and snow cones, popcorn and fairy floss by Bouncin’ Bodz.

Moolarben Coal General Manager, Brian Wesley, was thrilled to welcome everyone onsite.

“Family days provide a unique opportunity for our workers to invite their family and friends onsite to showcase where mum or dad work every day.

“It was great to see the kids enjoying the fun zone and the families getting involved in the pit tours to see the mine in operation and to get up close and personal with our big technical gear.

“Our families are so important to us, and it was fantastic that we could put a smile on their faces by displaying our mine and providing giveaways, as well as some tasty food and treats.

“As a major employer in the area, we are committed to the people of the local region and their families.

“The event was a fabulous success, and we look forward to hosting more events like this in the future for the benefit of our people and their loved ones,” said Brian.
