Peabody’s Wambo mine in the Hunter Valley, now in its 50th year, has both open-cut and underground operations.
Although it’s not Peabody’s biggest mine, Wambo has lead the way in achieving more cost-per-unit-moved than all of Peabody’s other mines. Wambo puts this down to its focus on achieving a positive and supportive management team which encourages its workers to use their initiative, providing them with a sense of purpose.
In 2018, Wambo spent $68.5 million with 194 local businesses, and paid $52.7 million to 390 employees who shop in and around Singleton.

Women make up 40 percent of all new-to-industry appointments, showing that they are serious about making changes in workplace culture.

The team at Wambo see their employees as people rather than just numbers, and knows that their success rides on the success of their workers.
