The Dawson Complex, located 185km south-west of the Queensland port of Gladstone, incorporates several earlier coal-mining operations in the area, including the Moura mine. Coal has been mined at Moura since 1961, making this one of the oldest operations in central Queensland. Moura also hosts Australia’s first commercial coal-bed methane recovery operation. Originally operated by BHP Mitsui Coal, the mine changed hands in mid-1999 when Peabody bought a 55% holding from BHP. Since 2001, ownership has changed again, firstly to Rio Tinto’ subsidiary, Coal and Allied, after which Mitsui invoked its pre-emptive rights to buy the whole operation before selling a 51% share to Anglo American in mid-2002.
