    Event description

    Fox Resources claims an ongoing market for metallurgical coal, the product of their proposed mine at Bundaberg.

    Coal and economics experts Simon Nicholas from the think tank the Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, and Tim Buckley from Climate Energy Finance are speaking in Brisbane, Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Mackay.

    Simon and Tim have been looking at the emergence of new 'green steel' technologies globally and what this will mean for coal exports in Queensland, including for projects like Fox's.

    Join us for a lively and timely discussion for anyone interested in the future of metallurgical coal and what it means for our climate, economy, and communities.
