The co-existence between the community and the mining industry is in focus at the upcoming Upper Hunting Mining Dialogue community day.
Taking centre stage at the Muswellbrook Regional Art Centre, community day will start on November 25th with a breakfast with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as addresses are delivered by some of the Mining Dialogue’s key stakeholders.
According to a statement from NSWMining, the public will see the showcase of positive and important coexistence being achieved by the Mining Dialogue.
“The Dialogue’s current projects including air and water quality monitoring, land management and rehabilitation programs developed in consultation with the community will be on display with the project experts on hand to explain the projects and answer questions,” the statement says
Upper Hunter residents have raised concerns with the Environment Protection Authority this week to change how noise from open cut mines is managed, including raising the maximum allowable day time noise level from 30 to 35 decibels.
The Dialogue will be broadcast live from the art centre’s forecourt, where key stakeholders involved with the projects are set to be interviewed.
