Whitehaven will have to reduce the amount of coal it extracts from its proposed Vickery coal mine extension by 11 million tonnes due to an administrative oversight. In an amended report to the state government, Whitehaven said the issue arose from an administrative oversight of the Division of Resources and Energy, when a mining lease was granted for mining purposes, such as waste emplacement and water infrastructure, but not coal extraction. The total amount of coal extracted from the mine will be reduced by 6.5 per cent, from 179 million tonnes to 168 million tonnes.

The amended report also reveals the drop in production would result in a reduction in net benefits to NSW of AUD 45 million.
