Whitehaven Coal Ltd (ASX: WHC) is the biggest pure play coal miner on the Australian share market. The company currently operates four mines (three open cut and one large underground mine) in the Gunnedah Coal Basin of NSW.

The mining giant also maintains a number of exploration and development projects in Queensland and New South Wales.

Founded in 1999, the company employs approximately 1,600 people, operates predominantly in New South Wales, and is administered by its head office in Sydney.

As a resource share in the ASX coal sector, the Whitehaven Coal share price is tied to the sometimes volatile fluctuations in the commodity pricing for the ‘black gold’. After WHC shares first listed on the ASX in 2007, Whitehaven has been a strong performer and now makes up part of the S&P/ASX 200 Index.
