What we do

The Coal Authority manages the effects of past coal mining, including subsidence damage claims which are not the responsibility of licensed coal mine operators. It deals with mine water pollution and other mining legacy issues.

Coal Authority is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department of Energy & Climate Change.
