    The mine uses mechanised bord and pillar mining to exploit the coal. The shallowness of the No. 4 seam enables a high extraction rate and thus increased productivity. The colliery currently operates three coal processing plants one to wash raw primary mined coal No. 4 seam plant one to primary wash discard material from the mineral residue .
