The New South Wales Planning and Assessment Commission (PAC) has raised concerns around the proposed 6.5-million-tonne-a-year Bylong coal project being developed by Korea’s Kepco.

In its review of the proposed project, which will consist of two opencut mines with an expected mine life of around 25 years, the PAC raised concerns around the “uncertainty” and “incomplete” information on the risk and benefits of the project.
