Anglo American has announced plans to invest more than $162m to rehabilitate its mining operations in Australia over the next five years.

The company has five metallurgical coal mines in Central Queensland, alongside two open-cut and three underground mines.

Anglo American will spend around $83m on rehabilitation at the open cut Dawson Mine near Moura, and another $40m at the Capcoal open cut mine near Middlemount.
