BREAKING: A huge new coal mine approved
Greenpeace, 19 september 2012

Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke has just approved the Alpha coal project in Queensland. If built, it would be as big as any coal mine operating in Australia, and marks the beginning of opening up the Galilee Basin to enormous coal developments.

The announcement also accelerates the industrialisation of the Great Barrier Reef. The coal from the Alpha mine will be exported through the Reef, leading to hundreds more coal ships and the construction of a huge new port facility within the World Heritage Area.
