More groups oppose Marloth mine proposal

Opposition to the application to mine just under 18 000 hectares for coal gained momentum this week as well-known attorney Richard Spoor has agreed to assist interested and affected parties.

He was instructed to request the application documents that were submitted to the Department of Energy.

According to the KLCBT, who is also acting on behalf of their members, “the content of the document will provide direction on how to go forward and address some of the immediate concerns, like where will the funding and water come from,w hat is the rehabilitation plan and so on.”

Experts who would like to assist with this process are encouraged to contact KLCBT.
