Mining and Coal Seam Gas Communications Project

Media Release 12 January 2016 Workshops for landholders on mining and CSG at Moss Vale NSW Farmers will hold a workshop for landholders on mining and coal seam gas, including land access issues and landholder rights, at Moss Vale in February. The workshop will be held as part of the NSW Farmers’ Mining and Coal Seam Gas Communications Project which is funded by the NSW Government. NSW Farmers CEO Matt Brand said: “With minerals, coal and coal seam gas applications or titles now covering much of NSW, farmers are increasingly facing competition for use of their land from mining and petroleum companies. “Through the project, NSW Farmers provides a one-stop-shop for farmers to help ensure their land, water and interests are protected when considering mining and coal seam gas proposals in their area or when dealing with an exploration company seeking access to their land. “Farmers and landholders want up to date and accurate information on mining and coal seam gas from a source they trust and the project workshops are an opportunity for landholders to get that information.” The workshops provide information on: • • •

mining and coal seam gas activity in your area the NSW Government’s Strategic Regional Land Use Policy package and how that applies to mining and coal seam gas proposals in your area and landholder rights and land access arrangements with exploration companies.

“We’ve had excellent feedback from farmers and landholders who have attended past workshops,” Mr Brand said. The free workshop will be held at Moss Vale from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, Saturday 6 February, at the Moss Vale Services Club by NSW Farmers’ Mining and Coal Seam Gas Officer Daniel Coulton.
