Acland Coal Mine - Queensland, Australia

Coal company’s do all they can to get their coal. They even buy out all the land and create a negative environment around residents that don’t sell their properties. An example of this is the town of Acland, where Glen Beautel remains to be the last man in the town - the rest of his neighbors sold their homes to the coal plants. Yet Glen Beautel remaines determined to hold on to his ranch, even though the coal industry constantly and persistently tries to buy his home so they can increase their profits and production in the mine.
