About Anglo American

Anglo American is a global diversified mining business with products that are essential ingredients in almost every aspect of modern life.

In Australia, we are headquartered in Brisbane and have five metallurgical coal mines in the Bowen Basin, along with additional joint venture interests. We are the world’s third largest seaborne exporter of metallurgical coal, and the largest underground coal miner in Australia. 

At Anglo American, we promote an inclusive environment where every colleague is valued and respected for who they are and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.​

We employ almost 5,000 people in Queensland alone and are constantly striving for ways to foster a more inclusive culture and improve diversity.

Each of our sites has an Inclusion and Diversity Council, which champion local initiatives and ensure a focus on promoting a positive workplace culture.

We’re embracing a new dynamic working policy, which aims to support all our employees, in various stages of their lives and careers. ​

We’re also taking a different approach to how we do business, particularly in how we provide greater opportunities and support for women entering our industry. As part of this approach, we recently launched our landmark female only trainee underground miner program at our Moranbah North mine.

“We want to create a culture where everyone belongs, where everyone is valued and where everyone has access to opportunities. It is about listening to our people and ensuring that people are at the heart of everything we do.”  - Tyler Mitchelson, CEO Metallurgical Coal

Real Mining. Real People. Real Difference.
