Hume Coal’s commitment to the Southern Highlands has been reinforced through the recent submission of the mining lease application (MLA) to the New South Wales State government.
Project Director Greig Duncan said this is a significant milestone as the Hume Coal project advances through the approval process.
“The recent submission of the MLA is another step forward for Hume Coal as our staff and consultants work determinedly preparing the Environmental Impact Statement for release later this year” Duncan said.
The low-impact mining operation will utilise industry-leading technologies, making this operation one of the country’s most innovative mining operations, ensuring the project delivers social, economic and environmental sustainability.
“We will continue to communicate and consult with the community as the Hume Coal project progresses through the approvals process,” concluded Duncan.
