Start with your name and where you live.

  • Deputy Premier John Barilaro told ABC News on Wednesday 20 January 2021 that Shenhua may reevaluate prospects for its Watermark coal mine on the Liverpool Plains since the financial landscape has changed.

  • Mr Barilaro said the Government is “having some negotiations to see what the future of that particular mining lease looks like.”

  • This provides an opportunity for Mr Barilaro to negotiate for Shenhua to relinquish their interest in the project.

  • A decision on Shenhua’s mining application will be made by the Department of Mining, Exploration and Geoscience, which falls under John Barilaro's ministerial responsibilities.

  • If Shenhua’s mining license is granted, the company will have to pay $200 million to the NSW Government. So far, Mr Barilaro has granted the company a payment extension, now we want the company to walk away and save the plains. 
  • This coal mine would destroy prime farmland, destroy First Nations cultural sites, and wipe out a colony of koalas.

  • The Chinese Government indicated recently that it’s not accepting Australian coal, so it should be a no-brainer for both Shenhua and the NSW Government to take this project off the table.
