Environment and Community
At Middlemount Coal, we are committed to maintaining a sustainable balance between economic development and the protection of the natural environment.
Our goal is to not only meet our environmental and cultural heritage obligations, but strive to exceed in all facets, therefore ensuring the protection of our environmental values within the Middlemount Mine as well as our surrounding communities.

OFFSET MANAGEMENT PLAN
The Middlemount Coal Mine Offset Management Plan/Vegetation Management Plan to offset the impacts to EPBC listed threatened species and ecological communities has been approved under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, (EPBC Act) and Queensland Nature Conservation Act (NC Act). For enduring protection, an offset area of over 3000ha has been secured through a legally binding voluntary declaration (VDec) under the QLD Vegetation Management Act
CULTURAL HERITAGE CENTRE
Establishing the Middlemount Coal Cultural Heritage Community Facility near the Middlemount Mine site has been a collaborative arrangement between the Middlemount Coal and the Traditional Owners, building on the consultative and inclusive relationship established and maintained between the Parties.
The Centre has been created for the long term protection and housing of salvaged artefacts and for the purposes of training and meetings. The facility includes a meeting room and artefact storage areas.
