Stop the Angus Place coal mine 

Burnt to ashes. Wetlands should not burn, but wetlands on the Newnes Plateau have burn because coal mining underneath has cracked the bedrock and the water has drained out.

The Nature Conservation Council is working with locals to oppose the Angus Place coal mine near Lithgow.  Centennial Coal want to longwall coal mine under previous wetlands which will be turned into lifeless, dusty deserts.

The longwall mining technique deliberately collapses the ground after the machine extracts the coal. This causes cracks in the bedrock, which drains water from the wetlands.  The re-opening and expansion of Angus Place mine under the remaining wetlands should be rejected. This area of the Newens Plateau should be protected from mining.


Repower NSW

To mitigate climate change we must rapidly phase out coal from our energy system and replace it with clean, renewable energy.  

The NSW government has recently made strides towards this goal, but more needs to be done.
