A driver has been killed in a truck accident at a NSW Hunter Valley coal mine.

The 53-year-old man received significant head injuries in an incident involving his haulage truck at Rixs Creek Mine near Singleton on Tuesday.

The man was airlifted to John Hunter Hospital, where he later died.

"This is devastating news and my deepest condolences and sympathies are with his family at this terrible time." Minister for Industry, Resources and Engergy Anthony Roberts said in a statement on Friday.
