A potential coal exploration licence at Wollombi has been ruled out.  

The Deputy Premier shot down the possibility, under questioning at Budget Estimates this morning.   

It’s understood, Wollombi and Ganguddy-Kelgoola near Rylstone in the Central Tableands were both being considered by the State Government.  

Independent MP Justin Field says it’s a great outcome for the regions and for the local environment.
