Wyong Coal says pre-construction plans for the Wallarah 2 mine will commence after the state government approved two mining leases Friday.

The move has been welcomed by the mining union but drawn criticism from MP David Harris.

In a statement he said ‘there’s little confidence’ the ‘security of the Coast’s water supply will be properly protected.’

NBN News has approached the Australian Coal Alliance for comment.
