Anglo American gets mining lease for Lake Lindsay coal mine expansion

UK-based mining company Anglo American has secured mining lease approval for the expansion of its Lake Lindsay coal mine in Australia.

The mining lease for the coal mine expansion was granted by the Queensland government.

Located in the Bowen Basin in central Queensland, Lake Lindsay is an open cut mine.

Queensland Resources Minister Scott Stewart said: “We need steel for construction, domestic appliances, automotive and mechanical equipment, and also for turbines to generate renewable energy on wind farms.”
