The Winchester South Coal Project is a new open-cut thermal and metallurgical coal mine in Central Queensland proposed by Whitehaven Coal.

The project’s EIS reveals it would mine up to 17 million tonnes of coal each year for 28 years. Read more. 

This project would be Whitehaven Coal’s first coal mine in Queensland, however they have operated for the last 10 years in NSW, where they have been exposed as environmental criminals who repeatedly infringe and break the law without concern for the impacts on water resources, the environment or affected communities.*
