STOP the Port Macquarie Sancrox Mine

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Port Macquarie is being proposed as a site for a new mine by the company Hanson Limited in the suburb of Sancrox in 2020. 

The proposed mine will clear approximately 43 hectares of known Koala habitat and native vegetation to create a new mine in the coastal town of Port Macquarie. 

The Hanson mine will be built on a known Koala Corridor and have huge environmental impacts on the biodiversity and natural habitat of the surrounding area. 

This petition is for anyone wishing to oppose the impending Port Macquarie Mine. 

We must fight for the soul and identity of Port Macquarie. We must protect our forests, our wildlife, our water and our homes. This mine can not happen! 

It is proposed the Hanson mine will extract 750, 000 tonnes per annum with the project running over a period of 30 years, and operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

The Port Macquarie Hanson mine will also have a huge impact on:

  • Local Communities & Homes
  • Destruction of Natural Habitat and Wildlife
  • Destruction of rare Koala Corridors 
  • Surface and Ground Water 
  • Noise Pollution with continued Blasting
  • Long lasting visual impacts on the Environment
