The New South Wales state government in Australia has reached a compromise with BHP Billiton over a multibillion-dollar coal project near Campbelltown, sectioning off portions of a promised national park to allow for further mining. The Minister for the Environment, Robyn Parker, confirmed a finger of the proposed national park reaching to the Georges River will be left to the company for longwall mining. Another swatch of land in the centre of the park will also be mined under the compromise, but there would be no undermining of the national park.
