Report summary

Australia's coal sector is battling through one of the most challenging periods in recent history, with lower prices weighing on margins and resulting in some operating mines closing. A number of mines continue to operate at negative margins, and a smaller number are not covering their variable costs - a key criterion in deciding whether to cease production in the short-run, and move to care and maintenance.
