Case studies will be presented to describe how  Oaky Creek improved monthly meters by 34% in two months and has exceeded its monthly budget each month since and Anglo's Moranbah North which has won ‘Coal Mine of the Year’ two out of the last three years and improved longwall production by 39% in 2014/15.
