BHP to Sell Controlling Stake in Two Coal Mines for Up to .35 Billion

ADELAIDE, Australia— BHP Group Ltd. said it would sell its controlling interest in two metallurgical coal mines to Stanmore Resources Ltd. for up to $1.35 billion, shifting focus to high-quality coal that it expects to be in demand as the global steel industry decarbonizes.

BHP said Stanmore will buy its 80% stake in BHP Mitsui Coal, or BMC, which operates the South Walker Creek and the Poitrel coal mines in Queensland, a coal-rich Australian state located in the northeastern part of the country. Japan’s Mitsui and Co. owns the remaining stake. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that a deal for BHP to sell the interest to Stanmore was close.
