Concerns with mine expansion plans

dendrobium mine

South 32's Dendrobium mine expansion has hit a giant snag with Water NSW opposing the plan...

It believes the Illawarra miner's scheme to dig under the drinking catchment area could cause cracking in the walls of Avon and Cordeaux Dams....

Water NSW claims the project would cause significant subsidence with forecast losses of up to 3-point 3 gigalitres of drinking catchment water per year.

South 32 will now respond to the report.
