Win for New Hope at Acland
The Land Court of Queensland has recommended that the environmental authority amendment application for stage 3 of the New Acland mine be granted, subject to conditions.
New Acland Mine general manager Dave O’Dwyer has welcomed the decision. Following the decision being handed down this morning by Land Court Member P. G. Stilgoe, OAM, Mr O’Dwyer said there are still a number of steps required to obtain final project approval for Stage 3.
“We will continue to work closely with the relevant Queensland Government departments to achieve these approvals, which would enable a restart of operations and employment opportunities for hundreds of local workers at the New Acland Mine, as well economic opportunities for the region more broadly,” he said.
