Rosemount, one of Australia's leading wine companies, is lobbying for talks between winemakers, coalminers and the government to head off potential trouble surrounding plans to develop Australia's largest open-cut coal mine. The New South Wales State Commission is currently considering a grant of development for the open-cut mine, situated in Mount Arthur North in the Hunter Valley.
