This process has captured a comprehensive proposal that addresses a number of existing elements such as the Bellambi Creek diversion project and further design and planning modifications to effectively manage such potential environmental impacts as noise, dust, lights and community interactions, according to Wollongong Coal.
 
"Specific matters identified in the previous submission such as the potential of mine subsidence impacts have been minimized through the utilisation of a mining system that delivers subsidence levels that are negligible," the company said.
 
"WCL envisages that this work and the consultation with stakeholders through the application process will result in an approval to commence mining operations after Mid-2019. 
 
"Coal production will commence following this and ramp through to the end of 2019."
