The extension of Tahmoor mine will save over 400 local jobs and pump millions of dollars into the local community. Without it, the mine will close in 2022 and the community will lose its lifeblood.
The local Member for Wollondilly, has been spreading misinformation about the extension.
There is strong community support in the Bargo and Wollondilly Shires for this project as it will inject $137 million into the local shire and almost $5 million in council rates.
Tahmoor Coal have worked with the community to reduce any impact on native vegetation, water resources, or residents.
Opposition to the mine has in the main come from property developers who wish to profit from a residential subdivision in Bargo.
Send an email to Nathaniel Smith, MP and tell him why you support the extension:
