Chinese mining company Shenhua has quite a battle on its hands.  It has loudly and proudly promised employment, investment, and royalties for the Gunnedah region, if its Watermark coal project goes ahead, but locals are publicly calling “foul” on Shenhua’s claims.

Residents have managed to stuff the NSW government’s letterbox full of appeals against the mine.  More than 80 per cent of the submissions urge the NSW government not to approve the project.
