Assessing the Cumulative Impacts of Mining on Regional Communities: An Exploratory Study of Coal Mining in the Muswellbrook Area of NSW

  • Year: 2008
  • Author: David Brereton, Chris Moran, Gillian McIlwain, James McIntosh, Kailee Parkinson
  • Publisher: ACARP
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: New South Wales

This project, which is an example of cross-company collaboration, focuses on the challenges involved in dealing with cumulative, or multi-mine, impacts at the local level. The project builds on an earlier Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP)-funded project conducted in 2004, undertaken by the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) that aimed to enhance the capacity of individual mines to monitor and manage their impacts on local communities (Brereton and Moffatt 2005).
