  • Coal Mining Proposals for the Liverpool Plain NSW (10/3/2016)
    The SFMCA supports the stance of a number of NSW farmers located on the Liverpool Plains of NSW that object to coal mine development that directly affects agricultural farm land. The Liverpool Plains is a critical supply source of grain for the NSW stockfeed industry. The SFMCA believes that mining development, that results in a loss of grain production land, should not be approved. The SFMCA has been lobbying federal and state politicians as well as the banking sector that would provide funding for the developments. In addition to loss of farming land, the SFMCA questions the impact of mining in this region on the underground water aquifers.
