Gloucester Resources Limited’s proposed Rocky Hill Mine project has moved onto the next stage of the process.

The Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) has received GRL’s Response to Submissions for the Rocky Hill Coal Project, which means the proposal has moved into the assessment stage.

A spokesperson for the DPE has confirmed that the document was placed on the DPE website on Monday, June 19.

This update comes on the back of GRL’s announcement about relinquishing a portion of the company’s Exploration Licence (EL) upon renewal in early 2018.

GRL’s statement about the intention to adjust the EL was released on Monday, June 19.

A spokesperson for the DPE said the department is now preparing its Assessment Report which, when completed, will be forwarded to the independent Planning Assessment Commission (PAC).
