Wollongong Coal wants to expand coal mining in our drinking water
catchment, but the company has a record of financial instability, technical
incapacity, and frequent breaches of the conditions of its mining licence.
Mining in water catchment areas is always risky because it threatens our
drinking water supply. It is especially risky when we know the company has
done the wrong thing in the past.
That’s why we are letting Wollongong Coal and its shareholders know that
mining our water catchments is not worth the risk.
