Songs from WhiteHaven Coal AGM Protest - Australian Stock Exchange Sydney - 4th November 2013
It's time Whitehaven coal shareholders understood that degrading ecosystems, dividing communities and damaging the climate is a risky business. Together with our friends at Quit Coal, on Monday the 4th of November, we'll gather outside Whitehaven's AGM, to explain exactly why. Right now, Whitehaven is progressing plans for its Maules Creek mine - a 2000 hectare open-cut coal mine in NSW's beautiful Leard State Forest. The mine will see 1600 hectares of unique bushland and farmland cleared, 700 hectares of which is classified as critically endangered. When fully operational, Maules Creek and its neighbouring Boggabri coal mine will destroy habitat for 396 native species, drain the local water table by up to 6-7 metres, pump 18,000 tonnes of coal dust onto surrounding communities and release 60 megatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year - more than the emissions of 165 countries, including Sweden, Hungary and Finland. The annual emissions from Maules Creek alone will be almost equivalent to that of New Zealand. By progressing Maules Creek, Whitehaven is locking us in to a future of angry summers, degraded ecosystems and divided communities.

Leard State Forest
The Leard State Forest will be flattened if the Maules Creek coal mine is allowed to go ahead. This mine, and the expansion of adjacent existing mines, will devastate local communities. It would dump 18,000 tonnes of dangerous dust per year on local farms and drain the water table by five to seven metres -- not to mention the social problems associated with a fly-in-fly-out population. Who are the people set to profit from the destruction of this forest and the nearby farmlands? None other than the infamous Whitehaven Coal. Some of Australia's most eminent ecologists claim that the company used false and misleading information in order to satisfy environmental assessments, prompting the Federal Court to start an investigation. Now, they are only days away from bringing in the bulldozers to flatten the forest.

Protecting water at Leard State Forest
30th March 2014, Leard State Forest.Sydney mother and former DPP solicitor, Marion Rose, chained herself to a water pump in order to slow the ongoing work of Whitehaven Coal Company at Maules Creek, next to the Leard State Forest. As a former officer of the Court, Ms Rose took the action only after a great deal of study and reflection, saying: "Now that I no longer work full-time I have had the time to read and think and to ask myself the same question most mums and grand-mothers ask themselves; are my kids and grandkids going to have a better life than me?" "The heart breaking answer to that is, no. As a result of climate change and the terrible way we are consuming our environment, their lives will be harder and my little one year old grand-daughter's life will be very much harder." "The police may charge me with interfering with mine equipment, but what kind of nation do we live in when mining equipment gets better protection than our kids and grand-kids -- who is protecting them and their future," concluded Ms Rose.

Should you invest in one industry mining towns?
You might have seen in the early 2000’s in Australia we had a massive mining boom. I'm going to give you a tip on what happens with mining towns when it comes to properties and property investing. I steer so far away from those types of investments I actually run. I don't walk, I actually run to stay away from them. Here's what happens. You get the big mining boom going on in Western Australia. The other big mining boom went on in Queensland. Basically, out come the property marketers and out come the spruikers, "Go and invest in these towns, because you're going to get a thousand bucks a week rent. There's workers coming in from all over the countryside. They've got nowhere to stay. The values will go through the roof." Et cetera, et cetera.

Yancoal-managed mine to shut down in NSW Hunter Valley
Yancoal-managed mine to shut down in NSW Hunter Valley: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-07-09/austar-coal-mine-in-doubt-after-coal-bursts/9957646. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Hunter Valley Austar coal mine to shut down with 200 jobs in doubt ABC Newcastle By Annabelle Regan  The future of a Hunter Valley underground coal mine is in doubt after Yancoal announced more than 200 employees are to be stood down or re-deployed. The Austar-run mine at Paxton, west of Cessnock, will retain skeleton crews to maintain the mine in accordance with compliance requirements.  Known as the Austar mine, it is one of the state's oldest coal mines and celebrated its centenary in 2016.  It is the same underground mine where two men, Philip Grant, 35, of Metford and 49-year-old Jamie Mitchell of Aberdare, were killed in 2014.    They were working with five others about 500 metres below the surface and 10 kilometres from the mine's entry point when a wall collapsed. The Resources Regulator has prohibited all underground longwall production activities at the operation, which is managed by Yancoal on behalf of the Watagan Mining Company.Coal bursts shut mine The operation's shutdown comes after two prohibition notices were issued by the regulator following significant coal burst events. Coal bursts involve the sudden, violent ejection of coal into the mine and typically happen without warning.  The first notice came on February 2, 2018, when, according to the Resources Regulator, approximately 50 tonnes of coal was ejected from the face of the mine.  One worker was taken to hospital and treated for a cut to his hand. The Resources Regulator issued a Section 195 notice to the mine, which prohibits cutting coal at the affected longwall.  The second notice came on May 17, 2018, after another significant coal burst event. While no workers were injured, the coal burst reportedly caused significant damage to equipment.  An estimated 60 tonnes of coal were ejected from the longwall face, approximately two tonnes landing in the walkway. The mine recently gained permission to undertake controlled cutting under strict conditions to test additional ways to mitigate a coal burst risk, which included maintaining a 50-metre exclusion zone for workers. The Resources Regulator said the notice would remain in place until a detailed geotechnical assessment was carried out and the mine operator could satisfy it that comprehensive risk controls could be implemented to protect workers.Uncertain future for workers  Yancoal is currently seeking an external merits review in the Industrial Relations Commission.  Yancoal Australia chief executive officer Reinhold Schmidt said the company was working to move employees to its other mines in the region.  "We have worked to redeploy the majority of the Austar workforce to the Ashton, Abel and Moolarben underground mines in the interests of providing continued employment for our people." "Until all legal avenues have been exhausted and we can re-enter the mine to move the longwall, we are unable to continue proposed longwall activity." #Yancoal, #managed, #mine, #shut, #down, #NSWHunterValley #mine, #jobs, #resources, #environment, #economy, #coal
