Data from Coal Services shows that the volume of coal exports from New South Wales has risen by 118 per cent since 2001. Annual exports peaked at 172 million tonnes in 2014, compared with just 75 million tonnes in 2001 and more than 164 million tonnes in 2018. NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee notes that state government revenue from mining royalties is expected to top $8bn over the next four years. He adds that coal, gold and copper generate more than $17bn in export revenue for the state each year.
