Coal Mine Background
In January 2020 there appeared to remain uncertainty about the timing of the rail solution to transport the coal to Gladstone. Stanmore says it will continue with environmental monitoring and other minor on-site activities to maintain compliance with approvals. In March 2019 a new site specific Environmental Authority (EA) was applied for and this application was accepted by the Department of Environment and Science (DES) as appropriate to re-activate the DES approval process.
As of April 2013 the proponent has a granted exploration permit for coal over the project area and has applied for mining leases. The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Assessment Report was issued to Stanmore Coal in April 2013 in accordance with Section 60 of the Environmental Protection Act 1994. The EIS process is now completed.
