Application for Stay

23 June 2017

New Acland Coal’s Application for a Stay in the Supreme Court has not been granted.

The granting of the Mining Leases and Environmental Authority now remain with the Minister for Natural Resources and Mines and Chief Executive of Environment and Heritage Protection to make a determination after consideration of all the information available to them.

New Hope remains committed to delivering the New Acland Stage 3 project and will actively progress this project through the final stages of approval.

Approval of this important project is consistent with the Palaszczuk Government’s recently unveiled resource policy which seeks to provide jobs, opportunities and investment certainty in regional areas for years to come.
