The article in the Australian Mining (http://www.miningaustralia.com.au/news/nsw-dust-control-standards-ramp-up ) is mainly the usual "motherhood PR stuff". There doesn't seem to be much in the actual regulator enforcement area. There is certainly no acknowledgement that uncontrolled open cut mining expansion into the residential areas has anything to do with the coal dust problem. Well, at least we have the dust not only on our roofs but also on the government radar!

In a way typical for the commercial journalism in this country, the above article does not give a link to the actual NSW EPA document. They have probably never heard about
http://bitly.com, http://tinyURL.com or http://shorturl.com.
After some searching, I have found what might be the correct link:
Short URLs like these should be included in any printed material for the convenience of all readers
(http://tinyurl.com/pf49qx9,http://bit.ly/1aoEWYC). We should follow the same convention.
