Final job losses at Solid Energy's Stockton mine have been confirmed, with 184 employees and contractors being made redundant.
The state-owned company announced in early June that a restructure at the West Coast mine would result in redundancies.
Today it confirmed that 134 employees and 50 contractors had been made redundant in the shuffle. Originally it had said 137 employees would lose their jobs.
New Zealand's largest open-cast coal mine would reduce production by 500,000 tonnes per annum over the next year.
When it announced the restructure, Solid Energy cited low international coking coal prices as the reason behind the move.
