Rio loses appeal over Warkworth mine

Mining giant loses bid to overturn halt of Mount Thorley Warkworth mine extension.

Rio Tinto has lost its appeal against the land and environment court’s decision to halt expansion of its Warkworth coal mine.

The mining giant had appealed last year’s decision to overturn government approval of an extension to its Mount Thorley Warkworth mine in New South Wales.

The court of appeal today backed the original decision, dismissing Rio’s appeal.
