Australian Pacific Coal to Appeal for Dartbrook Coal Mine

Reuters reported that Australian Pacific Coal Ltd said that it will appeal a state regulator’s decision to not extend the life of a mothballed coal mine. Australian Pacific, in its appeal, hopes to have the decision amended to allow mining operations to restart and give it a reasonable time frame for the mining to facilitate the necessary capital costs which will be incurred.

The New South Wales Independent Planning Commission in August approved the restart of underground operations at the Dartbrook Coal Mine in the state, but rejected a five-year extension beyond the current permit which ends Dec. 5, 2022. The Commission said it was not in the public interest to extend the mine’s life, and its decision highlighted the increased scrutiny authorities are showing towards coal mine approvals.
