Keep Southland’s coal in the hole, Coal Action Network urges Solid

Press release – immediate release

4 February 2013–  The Coal Action Network Aotearoa today welcomed Solid Energy CEO Don Elder’s resignation and called on the company to shut down its lignite proposals in Southland.
Ahead of the recent Keep the Coal in the Hole Summer Festival” in Southland, CANA called for Mark Ford to sack Elder, but his resignation has taken care of that.
“Don Elder has pushed forward with his uneconomic and environmentally ridiculous plans for exploiting the dirty lignite proposals in Southland, which have been hampered by delays and the departure of key partners,” said Tim Jones of CANA.
“Now Solid Energy has a chance to cut its losses, walk away from this failed project and leave Southland’s coal in the hole,” said Jones.
