Yancoal has placed its Donaldson coal operation into care and maintenance, according to a company press release. The move followed the end of mining operations at the Abel underground mine.

The move to care and maintenance comes in response to ongoing challenges in the global coal market, the company said. It is now considering the future development of new underground working areas with the start of new feasibility studies.

The majority of Donaldson employees have been redeployed to the neighbouring Austar and Ashton underground coal operations.
