NEW VALE MINE – OPEN for Public Sales
OHAI MINE – OPEN for Public Sales
We have reviewed the list of essential services published by Government. Under utilities the government lists “fuel”. Coal is a fuel for heating critical for the comfort and health of some households in Southland. Unless we are informed otherwise, we will continue to supply household coal through our public sales at New Vale & Ohai Mines.
Please ensure you bring your own shovels and rakes. These have been removed from public sales. We will be conservative in how much we load trailers so that the public will not have to take additional steps to secure their load (raking down and covering loads). We have adequate stockpiles of coal, we will not run short. It is during these times that the public are more likely to interact. We will endeavour to load you so that you will NOT have to exit your vehicle. The door to the offices are locked, so please do not attempt to enter any building. Please observe all public health precautions while on our site. Do not approach our operators or their machinery, they will approach you and maintain a safe distance. Please be kind, our staff are working to ensure your home heating supply will be secured. #NewValeCoal #OhaiCoal #Covid19
