The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) has warned that the Victorian government’s policy on the future use of coal in the state perpetuated the ‘closed for business’ reputation that the current government has earned.

South Australian Resources Minister Wade Noonan at the end of last week announced a policy on the future use of brown coal in the region, ensuring that new projects complied with the Victorian government’s commitment to net zero emissions by 2050, and placing strict requirements on private sector proposals for new uses of coal.
