Description

Illawarra Residents for Responsible Mining is a community group that formed in 2011 to oppose the expansion of the Gujarat NRE No. 1 Colliery in Russell Vale (now named Wollongong Coal Ltd’s Russell Vale Colliery) in NSW, Australia. We advocate for responsibility in mining, mining which puts the health and well-being of ordinary people and of the environment ahead of corporate mining interests.

Coal processing in a residential area? Mining under our sensitive water catchment area? Residents say "NO" to Wollongong Coal's expansion!
