Timeline

New Hope Group has been waiting 12 years for approval of the next stage of the New Acland Mine near Oakey.

Our application to expand the mine pre-dates the launch of the first Apple iPhone and, 12 years later, we are still waiting. This is not a new mine – New Acland has been in operation for more than 17 years.

The state government has all it needs to approve Stage 3. We are calling on the Premier to make the call and let us get on with employing regional Queenslanders in high paying, full time jobs.
