Muswellbrook Shire Council: Reverse your opposition to the extension of Mangoola Mine

Coal miners have traditionally been able to rely on local government to support their jobs.

But Muswellbrook Shire Council has opposed an extension of Mangoola mine, putting 500 jobs at risk. Please help support local mining jobs by asking Council to reverse their opposition to the Mangoola Coal Continued Operations Project. Your email will go to all Councillors.

 

This is what your email will say (your name will be automatically added): 

Dear Councillor, 

I'm asking for your support to reverse Muswellbrook Shire Council's perplexing opposition to the extension of Mangoola mine.

This extension would support important jobs for our community. It would sustain the 400 existing mining jobs, which would grow to 480 over the course of the project, alongside 145 construction jobs. 

It's important to note we are talking about genuine local jobs here. Mangoola Mine has a highest proportion of local workers of any in the area.

Our community depends on mining and our local government has traditionally had our backs. 

Of course any mining proposals should meet the high environmental and regulatory standards required in New South Wales. But if a proposal clears those high standards, as this extension does, it shouldn't be blocked on ideological grounds. 

Please support your community by supporting jobs at Mangoola mine and reversing Muswellbrook Shire Council's opposition to this important project.
