Coal was discovered in Whauwhau Valley in the 1860s and a mine was developed. A wooden tramway was built from the mine to the Hatea River so that coal wagons, pulled by horses, could be loaded onto ships. Coal was mined beneath Kamo almost continuously from 1876 until 1955. The New Kamo Collieries Ltd began near the Kamo Railway Station in 1934 over an extensive field of good quality coal. The mine worked towards Mt Denby, and surfaced near the present Kamo bypass.
