United Collieries and its immediate surrounds are the subject of regular archaeological investigations, both surface and subsurface.

The survey areas for these projects are selected based on the location of proposed mining disturbance areas for which previous surveys have not been conducted and may adjoin previous study areas. No archaeological sites are disturbed without the appropriate permits issued by the Office of Environment and Heritage following consultation with the Aboriginal community. United maintains an Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Plan which manages sensitive archaeological areas and outlines consultation with the Aboriginal community.
