The Leard Forest mine precinct is locatLeard Forest Mine Precincted less than half an hour’s drive North East of Boggabri in the Liverpool Plains of NSW.

The surrounding regions of concern are a 30km radius of affectation from the current centre of the mines precinct stretching north to the Nandewar Ranges, west to the Pilliga, north west to Wave Hill, east to Wean (home of the famed Wean Picnic Races) and south past Boggabri.

The Leard Forest and its immediate surrounds are now the location of three coal mines, which are expected to operate for at least 21 years from today, and possibly longer. Together they will clear at least 5,000 ha of land.
