After mining, the crushed coal was railed to the Port Augusta power stations where it was used as fuel contributing to the state''s electricity needs. Due to the steeply dipping seams, the economic recovery of coal by open cut methods was limited to around 100 Mt (20% of the estimated coal resource), to a maximum depth of around 250 m.
