QRC urges Qld to make a decision on New Acland

The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) has urged the Queensland government to immediately approve the New Acland Stage 3 project, following a Court of Appeal decision in favour of miner New Hope.

The Court of Appeal on Tuesday ruled against an appeal made by activist group Oakey Coal Action Alliance, which challenged a Supreme Court decision to set aside a ruling from the Land Court, refusing mining lease applications for the New Acland Stage 3 project.
