The New Acland Coal mine has been operating responsibly on the Darling Downs for almost two decades - employing hundreds of workers and pumping millions into the local economy. We employ local workers, engage local suppliers, and support local schools, sporting and community groups.
For more than 13 years our workers and their families have been waiting for approvals from the State Government to continue our operations into the next stage.
This would extend the life of the mine by a further 15 years, create hundreds of new jobs and provide billions of dollars of economic benefit to the State. But we can’t because the State Government is allowing a handful of activists to tie this project up in never ending green lawfare and effectively run down the clock on what everyone agrees is a worthwhile project.
So why should you care?
Well our mine extension is being unfairly targeted, delayed and blocked by activists. Right now it's our community at risk; our jobs, our families and our lives put in limbo.
