Heaphy Mining Limited operates an opencast coal mine at Berlins Creek in the Lower Buller Gorge, approximately 35km from Westport. We provide thermal coal to industrial and domestic consumers throughout the Upper South Island.
There is a long history of coal mining in the area, starting back as early as 1884. The Mine was bought off LL Heaphy & Sons in 1994 by Harold Clementson.
It remains a family-owned and run mine. We are proud to be a part of an industry that has been instrumental in shaping the NZ we live in today.
Sitting on an area of Brunner Coal Measures, the mine produces a sub-bitumous coal with an average CV of 22 MJ/kg that is low in ash and sulpher.
We have an estimated 6 M tonnes of coal reserves recoverable using opencast methods.
We can supply direct or work with our suppliers in Christchurch who can blend our coal to meet customer requirements. Please contact us for further information.
