New Hope Coal has warned that the Queensland Government’s proposed new water licence regime for existing resources projects will affect the timetable for the expansion of its Acland mine. MD Shane Stephan has told state MPs that the company will have to begin laying off workers at the mine in 2017 if the legislation is passed. The Queensland Resources Council has criticised the proposed legislation, which would subject resources projects to an additional environmental approval process in order to obtain a water licence.
