Mining giant Whitehaven Coal plans to bury 730 tyres under Leard State Forest



Gunnedah Basin mining giant Whitehaven Coal (WHC) is copping heat over plans to bury hundreds of used heavy-machinery tyres on its Tarrawonga Coal Mine site in north-west New South Wales.

The mine sits within the boundary of the Leard State Forest and is expected to close by 2028.

WHC has applied to modify its development consent to allow for the disposal of an estimated 730 tyres on the site.

That includes an estimated 187 tyres stockpiled on site and about 78 tyres each year until the mine closes.
