A report in the Singleton Argus of 30 June contains a claim by Mr John Krey of Bulga that EMM was pressured by its client Rio Tinto to withdraw and/or amend a social impact report for the Warkworth Continuation 2014 project. EMM refutes this claim entirely. We prepared a comprehensive social impact assessment which showed that, on balance, the social effects of the Warkworth project would be positive. EMM stands by the SIA and its conclusions entirely.
