Muswellbrook – Background information

The Shire of Muswellbrook, is located west of Newcastle in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW, and includes the townships of Muswellbrook, Denman and Aberdeen. The shire covers an area of 3046 km2 and is home to rural industries, horse studs, vineyards, olive groves, light industry and mining operations. The town was founded in 1827 and called Muscle Brook (for mussels found in a local stream); the name was subsequently further corrupted to Muswellbrook. Proclaimed a town in 1833, it became a municipality in 1870.

The New England Highway, a major arterial road-transport link between the east coast and the western NSW inland areas, runs through the centre of the town of Muswellbrook, linking it with Singleton to the south and Scone to the north. The township is located on the Hunter River, a major source of water for agriculture, viticulture (wine) and mining.

GRT Case Study – Muswellbrook, New South Wales

The earliest coal mine was opened in Muswellbrook in 1907, indicating that the community of Muswellbrook has had a long exposure to coal mining operations. Coal bearing strata within the Muswellbrook area from part of the Sydney-Gunnedah Basin. The coal seams mined by Muswellbrook Coal Company (MCC) are part of the Greta Coal Measures, the lowermost coals of the Sydney Basin. Global Road Technology has rendered CHPP and haul road dust suppression services in similar operations.

GRT dust suppression applications and products 

Drilling: The economic value of drilling operations should not happen at the expense of worker safety and health. It is important to implement industry best practice to ensure dust produced from drilling do not pose any health hazards to the mineworkers. We offer effective blast and drill dust control. 

ProductGRT: 12X 

Blasting: GRT takes a no-compromise stance to save lives and its sole mandate is to offer solutions at the apex of solving any dust-related problem arising from blasting activities before it takes place. We offer effective blast pattern dust suppression solutions. 

ProductGRT: DC Binder 

Haul roads: Reports indicate that a mine site uses 9.4 million litres of water per day on just its haul road activities. Water is not only unsustainable but also very ineffective as a haul road dust suppression method. Using GRT:Haul-Loc results in great operational improvement and massive cost savings in water usage and fuel used for water truck movements. 

ProductGRT: Haul-Loc 

Stockpiles: We have grown a rapport across many industries for tackling stockpile dust challenges on different sites. Mining is one of our major areas. So, why wait to hear it from elsewhere when you can get it first hand from us.


Conveyor belts: GRT implements a combination of chemistry and particle size in making water work for conveyor belt dust control. We wet the material to optimal moisture content, preventing fines from being carried off into the air, or to the air above the material, to return airborne fines to the material bed. The material doesn’t have to be handled again.
