Boggabri Modification 8

Proponent: Idemitsu

Timeline: 3 year extension to 2036

Total coal: 28 million tonnes

Total lifecycle emissions: 63 million tonnes

This project will deepen the existing pits at Idemistu’s Boggabri coal mine, worsening its impact on water resources in the Namoi Valley.

It will use 600 megalitres of water a year and the NSW water agency has warned that the mine will struggle to obtain lawful allocations of water to cover its demand in dry times.
