    The NSW government will pay Shenhua Energy $100 million to shelve plans for its coal mine on the Liverpool Plains near Tamworth. Farmers had fought for 13 years, fearing the mine’s effects on groundwater, farmland and animal habitats. In 2017, state authorities paid more than $260 million for the project to be scaled back. The future of 1,000 jobs surrounding the $1.6 billion investment is now unclear. More: http://7news.link/32ztfk4
