New South Wales blocks South32 coal expansion plans

The New South Wales Independent Planning Commission (IPC) has pushed back on diversified miner South32’s planned extension of its Dendrobium coal mine.

The A$956-million extension project would see an additional 78-million tonnes of run-of-mine coal recovered from two new areas, Areas 5 and 6, comprising 21 long wall panels, and would extend the mine life until the end of 2048.

Coal production from Area 5 was anticipated to start in 2024, with Area 6 production to follow some 19 years later.
