Mining.com reported that the creator of one of the world's largest indoor rainforests, UK-based charity The Eden project, has partnered with aluminum giant Alcoa to build a USD 150 million eco-tourism attraction at the company’s former Anglesea coal mine, in Australia. The parties estimate the project could create 300 full-time jobs and attract thousands of visitors if it gains the support of the community, finds funding via investors, and passes the planning and approvals process.

At the moment, Alcoa is seeking community feedback about the proposed rehabilitation of the shuttered coal mine and power plant, which would be turned into gardens surrounding a giant lake.
