This is the third image of three uploaded onto ABC OPEN to invoke comments and discussion on the value of coal exports from Newcastle to Asian countries.
This record shot shows the 47,000 DWT cargo ship “Glory Ace” leaving the Port of Newcastle on the 1st December 2012. Its cargo of high quality steaming coal mined in the Hunter Valley was loaded at the Basin Coal Loader opposite Kooragang Island. The iconic Nobbys Lighthouse can be seen in the background.
