In a devastating outcome for Drayton's 500 workers and their families, on Friday 20 November the Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) recommended that the Drayton South project should not proceed. Read the PAC's full report here.
Anglo American will now review the PAC's report and carefully consider the closure plan for Drayton. We'd like to thank all of the community members, local business owners, suppliers and community groups who have continued to support Drayton South, including the over 10,000 people who made positive submissions in support of the project to the PAC or spoke in support of Drayton South at the PAC public hearing.
