The audience votes against the mine proposal at the KCCG’s first public meeting held at Kingaroy Town Hall in February

July 5, 2016

The Kingaroy Concerned Citizens Group is seeking donations from its supporters so it can hold another community forum in Kingaroy about Moreton Resources’ proposed open cut coal mine.

The group, which has lodged a submission with the Federal Government opposing the mine, aims to hold the forum on August 11.

A previous meeting organised by the group packed the Kingaroy Town Hall in February.

It an email to members, the KCCG said the August forum would:

  • Update the community on the latest details of the proposal
  • Explain the approval process that the company will have to follow
  • Explain how residents can be involved to ensure the project does not go ahead
  • Hear from guest speakers
  • Allow statements from the community
  • Conclude with a vote for or against the mine to show the company and the government exactly how the community is receiving the prospect of the mine.

The email included a claim by the KCCG that Moreton Resources was considering exporting coal from the mine by train through Kingaroy.

The KCCG is hoping to raise $2700 from supporters to cover the cost of printing and postage to invite residents to attend the forum.
