The Ewington mine lies within the Premier Coal Measures, 10 kilometres east of Collie and is gradually advancing down dip to the east.
There are three main seams (1.5 metres to three metres thick) and four associated seam splits of one metre or less being mined within a 25 metre vertical section. These seams are generally smaller than Muja but production levels are similar. Deepening of the mine is underway to develop a further three seams.
The seams are gently dipping but are subject to structural faults and the occasional “washout.” Faults and washouts are managed within the normal course of operations. The mine is along a two kilometre strip parallel to the seam subcrop.
The same mining methods and equipment from Muja mine are used at Ewington, for reasons of flexibility in equipment deployment.
