Whitehaven wins court battle

Coal miner defends injunction application from environment group that would have delayed construction works.

Whitehaven Coal (WHC) has won a court battle with an environment group that wanted to prevent the miner starting work on its Maules Creek project until another court judgement was finalised.

In a statement, Whitehaven said the Federal Court dismissed an application brought by the Northern Inland Council for the Environment seeking an injunction to stop the commencement of construction works at the mine.
