Divestment Review 

Since commencing a review of our lower grade metallurgical and thermal coal assets in August 2020, we have announced the divestment of our interests in BHP Mitsui Coal in Queensland and Cerrejón in Colombia, and announced our plan to proceed to a managed closure of Mount Arthur Coal by 2030.

We have announced the divestment of our Blackwater and Daunia mines, which are part of our BMA portfolio.

Following a review of all available options, BHP has made a decision to keep Mt Arthur Coal in its portfolio and seek the relevant approvals to continue mining beyond its current mining consent that expires in 2026, as part of a responsible process to cease mining in 2030 and provide a pathway to closure for the operation.
