Approvals, Plans and Reports


In keeping with Peabody’s overarching commitment to good stewardship and responsible environmental management, Wambo places a heavy focus on rehabilitation, and has aggressive rehabilitation targets in place.

For its rehabilitation and reclamation activities, Wambo’s main objective is to achieve stable landforms and sustainable final land use, enhancing ecological values from its location adjacent to a national park.


As a long-term participant in the Hunter Valley community, Wambo is committed to ongoing engagement and participation in community activities. These have recently included sponsoring local schools and participation in the New South Wales Minerals Council education program. Wambo is also a sponsor of the Singleton Hall of Fame.

The Wambo Community team is interested to hear from local community members and community groups about local initiatives and proposed projects Wambo may be able to support. Please direct initial enquiries to the Peabody Wambo Community Enquiries Line on +61 2 6570 2245.
