The 2016 Hunter Valley Coal Festival

Coal Services returned as a proud sponsor of the Hunter Valley Coal Festival in 2016.

The festival aims to bring together the region’s mining industry and local communities to recognise and celebrate the contribution of mining to the Hunter Valley.

This year, Coal Services had the opportunity to interact with members of the public during a range of festival activities, including:

  • mine environment virtual reality demonstrations using portable VR laptops and Oculus headset
  • Mines Rescue vehicle extrication demonstration with Peabody’s Mines Rescue team
  • street parade participation
  • provision of first aid assistance to community by Mines Rescue.

Coal Services was also pleased to engage former NRL star Dan Hunt to deliver a series of talks about mental health at local mine sites throughout the festival.
