The project brings together mine operators, government, Traditional Owners and community groups through an independent, facilitated process to consider what opportunities the extensive lands currently zoned for mining present for the future, post-coal fired power generation. It aims to build and support existing processes, avoiding duplication and focusing on what is realistic, feasible and desirable.
