Peabody Energy Announces Joint Venture with Glencore to Expand Mine Life and Lower Costs at Wambo Open-Cut Mine

Peabody Energy announced an agreement to establish a joint venture between Peabody's Wambo Open-Cut Mine and Glencore's United Mine in New South Wales, Australia. The joint venture is expected to deliver significant synergies by improving productivity, lowering costs and extending mine life. The 50-50 joint venture will combine Wambo's Open-Cut mining operations with United's adjacent reserves in the Hunter Valley. Glencore will manage the combined mining operations utilizing Wambo Open-Cut Mine's existing infrastructure, and Peabody will continue to operate coal washing and loading facilities. The project is anticipated to commence in 2017, subject to regulatory permitting. Peabody's North Wambo Underground operations are not affected.
