In its 2008-2009 annual report, Mineral Resources Tasmania, the government agency regulating the mining industry, stated "Cornwall Coal NL continued underground mining at the Duncan Colliery at Fingal.

Open-cut mining in the Fingal Valley continued at the Cullenswood mine, and at the Kimbolton mine in the Derwent Valley."[2]
