Objection to Illawarra Coal’s Proposed Mine Extension for Dendrobium. Project SSD-8194.

South32 proposes to extend the Dendrobium Mine Project for 30 years using aggressive longwall mining in the Special Area of the Sydney Water catchment. Documented evidence confirms the adverse impacts that previous operations at Dendrobium (and other mines in this area) have had on the water catchment. This proposal will result in further damage to the catchment area and loss of irreplaceable water for Australia’s largest city.
Sutherland Shire Environment Centre (SSEC) calls for the NSW Government to reject South32’s Proposed Mine Extension for Dendrobium Mine.
