Centennial is seeking approval to extend its underground mining operations at Angus Place to the east of the site’s current operations. The Angus Place Extension Project will secure local jobs, while the local and regional community will also continue to benefit from the mine's positive economic contribution. The Project aims to secure significant long term coal resources in close geographic proximity to local power stations.
In May 2014 Centennial Coal submitted an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to support its application for the Angus Place Mine Extension Project. In accordance with the state approval process, the EIS was placed on public exhibition from 12 April 2014 to 26 May 2014. Following the receipt and review of submission, Centennial Angus Place submitted a Response to Submissions Report (RTS report) in September 2014. Following the distribution of the RTS report a number of additional submissions were made by various government agencies and responded to by Centennial in the Response to RTS report submitted on 19 December 2014. Whilst there were not changes to the Project from that presented in the EIS, the RTS and Response to RTS report, additional assessment work was completed and specialist feedback was received in support of the Project.
The Angus Place Mine Extension Project is currently being assessed by the Department of Planning and Environment.
Angus Place commenced 'care and maintenance' on 28 March 2015. For further information please to the Angus Place Operations page or click here.
