The Toowoomba Coal Mine Action Group was established in response to news that a Exploration Permit for Coal (EPC 1979) has been approved for the area around Gowrie Junction and Kingsthorpe.
If this particular location was to be approved for mining it would have a huge bearing on Toowoomba and the surrounding districts. Toowoomba is a city of over 90,000 residents, over 125,000 if the surrounding districts are taken into account. This EPC is less than 10kms to the Toowoomba CBD, and less then 5kms to Highfields.
The above image shows the EPC’s (exploration Permits for Coal) that have been APPROVED around Toowoomba. There is only ONE reason why coal mining companies apply for exploration rights, and that is to MINE THE COAL.
