Bid for coal mine near Eneabba rejected

Thursday, 22 Dec 2011

It is reported that a bid by Central West Coal to develop a coal mine south of Eneabba has been rejected.

The Environmental Protection Authority considered five appeals against the development. It concluded the proposal could not meet its environmental objectives for protecting flora and fauna.

Mr Bill Marmion Environment Minister said the EPA decision is justified and appropriate. He will now consult with the relevant environmental authorities to determine whether or not the proposal can be implemented and under what operating conditions.
