Hearing on Bathurst's mine application to resume

3:05 pm on 28 June 2011

A resource consent hearing for Bathurst Resource's proposed coal mine in the Buller district on the West Coast will resume next month.

Bathurst is seeking to construct an open cast mine in the area, producing up to two million tonnes of export coal per year.

The hearing was adjourned earlier this month, to allow for information to be circulated amongst parties, and it will be reconvened on 6 July.
