The Queensland Resource Council (QRC) has welcomed a ruling from the Queensland Land Court that recommended that a mining lease and environmental authority should be issued to the Kevin’s Corner coal mine, in the Galilee basin, subject to the original draft conditions.

A number of environmental groups applied to the Land Court to stop the development of the proposed $4.2-billion mine, citing concerns about the project’s groundwater use.
