The New Zealand Herald reports demonstrators known as the Save Happy Valley Coalition are angry about the mining firm's activities in Happy Valley on the South Island.
They say the company plans to turn wilderness in the area into an open cast coal mine, which could kill endangered species.
Don Elder says the protestors attempted to throw a cream pie at him, and then tried to pour coal on him.
He says the group had been invited to the annual meeting.
