Angus Place

There has been mining at Angus Place Colliery for nearly 70 years.

The mine has been on care and maintenance since early 2015. Angus Place will continue to meet safety and environmental regulations and the site will be appropriately maintained to enable a reopening when the Springvale reserves have been extracted or if market conditions improve.

Centennial is seeking approval to extent its underground mining operations at Angus Place. The proposed Angus Place Extention Project aims to secure significant long term coal resources in close geographic proximity to local power stations.

Environmental Management Plans, Strategies and Programs


Mining Operations Plan / Rehabilitation Management Plan

Mining operations in NSW are required, as a condition of an authorisation issued under the Mining Act, to conduct mining operations in accordance with a Mining Operations Plan (MOP) that has been approved by NSW Trade and Investment – Division of Resources and Energy.

The MOP describes the manner in which mining, processing, rehabilitation and reporting are to be undertaken with reference to Management Plans and Procedures. The MOP also establishes relationships to other approval and reporting requirements consistent with development consent, leases and licences.

Subsidence Management

Subsidence Management Plans (SMPs) are prepared by mining lease holders to consider the potential impacts of underground mining and identify measures to manage such impacts. SMPs may contain requirements for the avoidance of damage to particularly significant features, the mitigation of damage, or rehabilitation of subsidence related impacts.

The following provides a summary of environmental monitoring data undertaken as required by Environment Protection Licences and Approvals. The purpose of this data is to provide the community with meaningful information on the performance of environmental controls.
