For the fourth time, the request for expansion of Hunter Valley mine was rejected because of environmental concerns. The Anglo-American mining giant has proposed Drayton South project several years ago but the independent Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) said that there were too many risks involved associated to noise, air quality and other environmental impacts.
If the Hunter Valley mine expansion is approved, the Hunter Valley thoroughbred studs will be forced to leave. On the other hand, Ruth Rogers, president of Singleton Business Chamber, she is totally disappointed on the rejection of the Drayton South project not only for the expectant workers but the economies of Singleton, Muswellbrook and Scone including other outlying areas.
It is very obvious that PAC disagreed with the sentiments of the community. People need jobs and it is a mental strain for them and their families to find work. If the expansion of the mine is approved, many people will be employed. The same sentiments were echoed by Stephen Galilee, chief executive of Minerals Council Australia. He said that if the project is approved, it will benefit the community and industries, as well.
If the mining operation is not allowed to proceed, the 500 workers who lost their jobs will be disappointed. Mr. Galilee also said that the environmental impact cited by PAC is not sufficient enough to prevent the project from proceeding.
On the other hand, Jan Davis, the group president of Hunter Valley Environment Lobby, hopes that the plans for the resurrection of the coal mine will never happen. In the so-called battle between coal and foals, the foals only won because the thoroughbred breeders spent millions of dollars in hiring the best legal teams. Ordinary people who live on the land cannot pay for good legal teams and they have to suffer from the noise created by the coal mines.
The ball mill manufacturer is an important part of the mining industry of any country. Manufacturers have the expertise and resources to provide the necessary equipment in grinding and processing materials generated from a mining project. Heavy duty equipment does all the hard work in the industry that processes an enormous amount of products.
