WhitehavenOfficeBoggabri_29012014-2

Wednesday 29 January 2014, Boggabri: Concerned citizens from the Leard State Forest blockade paid an impromptu visit to the offices of Whitehaven Coal in Boggabri today demanding to be given the independent review of the company’s offsets plan for Maules Creek mine. Spokesperson Phil Spark said Condition 10 of the approval under the EPBC Act requires Whitehaven coal to publish the independent review. This independent review was completed in December 2013 and both Whitehaven and the Federal government have denied conservation groups and citizens access to the document. Former Environment Minister Tony Burke's approval conditions have not been met.
