Latrobe Valley Brown Coal Mines

Coal Earth Resources

Brown coal seams in the Latrobe Valley are up to 100 metres thick with multiple seams often giving nearly continuous thickness of up to 230 metres. Seams are typically located under only 10-20 metres of overburden. Therefore, brown coal lends itself to low-cost, large-scale open-cut mining. The Loy Yang and Yallourn mines produce the majority of brown coal in the Latrobe Valley.
