Frances Mountier, Coal Action Network Aotearoa spokesperson, appeared on TVNZ’s Breakfast show this morning.
Coal Action Network Aotearoa is opposed to any new or expanded coal mine and so we are opposing Bathurst’s proposed Denniston mine. If it went ahead, it would increase NZ’s coal exports by 62%.
And it would be a 200 hectare opencast mine on conservation land. We all need to let Bathurst – and the Government – know that we do not want to see mining on our precious lands, especially for climate polluting coal.
