Anvil Hill is situated at Wybong, west of Muswellbrook in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW, Australia. It is the largest intact stand of remnant vegetation on the Central Hunter Valley floor, home to threatened species and indigenous heritage. Centennial Coal wants to lay waste to this with an open-cut coal mine that will produce at least 9 million tonnes of coal a year and help drive the massive expansion of the Hunter Valley coal industry. If this goes ahead it will accelerate the onset of dangerous climate change, the greatest threat to human and non-human life.
The Anvil Hill Alliance is a group of organisations and individuals determined to stop the proposed mine.
Anvil Hill is shaping up to be the iconic coal mine fight in the Hunter.
For those of us worried about climate change, loss and degradation of rivers, loss of biodiversity, fracturing of community, health problems and myriad other disasters that coal mining inflicts upon the Hunter and the world, please get behind the fight to stop Anvil Hill. If we can show that one mine can be stopped, then we’ve all got a better chance to stop the next one.
