Of the many pending approvals of new mines in NSW, DEA made submissions on these interrelated mines for two reasons:
– the potential health impacts; the extension of the Warkworth Mine brings mining operations and pollution closer to the village of Bulga and
– the related Mt Thorley Mine extension contributes to significantly longer operations at the site.
This submission of June 2015 updates and should be read in conjunction with our prior submissions. In addition to these submissions (below) and expert evidence presented by Dr Ben Ewald at the Singleton hearings, we have identified significant errors and weaknesses in the PAC recommendations.
