About Malabar

Malabar Resources is an independent Australian-owned resources company with exciting projects based in the Hunter Valley. Malabar recognises the need to transition to a low carbon economy which is why we have developed a unique strategy by employing underground mining methods, focusing on metallurgical coal, developing large scale renewable energy projects, and rehabilitating previously mined areas for sustainable activities including renewables and agriculture. 

Our products include high-quality metallurgical coal, predominantly used to manufacture steel, renewable energy, which will feed into the strategically important electricity generation hub of NSW (now the designated Hunter-Central Coast Renewable Energy Zone (REZ)), and agricultural products.

Our Story

Malabar Resources was founded by a team of experienced mining executives with an impressive track record of mine funding, development and operation in Australia. Their vision was to build a different type of resource company that was focused on the transition to a low carbon economy, mining metallurgical coal, developing renewable resources and rehabilitating previously mined areas for repurposed uses.

The Malabar site is located in the Hunter Valley, east of Denman and south of Muswellbrook.  The mine was approved by the NSW Government in December 2020, following comprehensive environmental and technical analysis and more than eight years of ongoing consultation with the local community and neighbours, ensuring the operations can comfortably co-exist with other industries and land use in the area.

Construction commenced in May 2022 and during this period will involve the generation of approximately 400 new jobs and utilise the services of many local businesses and suppliers.  Once fully operational, the mine will provide more than 430 full-time jobs.

Our Vision and Values

We are building a successful resources company for the long-term benefit of all stakeholders while listening to and working alongside our communities.
