The Eaglefield Mine is an open-cut mine located 160 kilometers west of Mackay that produces high quality hard coking coal for export markets.
Peabody acquired Eaglefield in 2004. The 3,341 hectare mining lease is shared with another Peabody operation, North Goonyella. Eaglefield has a workforce of approximately 160 people, including contractors, and its operations are carried out under contract by Macmahon.
The mine produced approximately 0.9 million tons of saleable coal in 2012.

Eaglefield has a dynamic rehabilitiation program and this year will embark on a 46 hectare waste-dump revegetation.
As a shared site, Eaglefield participates in the same community activities as the North Goonyella mining operation. Sponsorship and support has included the Mackay Festival of Arts and Queensland Regional Achievement and Community Awards.
Community consultation is an ongoing priority that includes community meetings with stakeholders, such as local grazers and representatives from Isaac Regional Council.
