Coal export plans

In early August 2011 Lanco Infratech, the parent company of Griffin Coal -- which owns and operates the Collie coal mines -- met with the West Australian Premier Colin Barnett. According to a report in the West Australian, the meeting was to discuss the company's "hopes to complete an expansion of Bunbury Port's inner harbour by the end of 2013 to allow it to start exporting coal to India" after a tripling of production from the Collie coal mines.[2]
