The NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption conducted a composite investigation comprising three segments (Operation Indus, Operation Jasper and Operation Acacia). This report concerns the investigation into the Operation Jasper segment and concerned a number of matters including the circumstances surrounding a decision made in 2008 by the then Minister for Primary Industries and Minister for Mineral Resources, the Hon Ian Macdonald MLC, to grant a coal exploration licence, referred to as the Mount Penny tenement, in the Bylong Valley, including whether that decision was influenced by the Hon Edward Obeid MLC or members of his family. The Commission also examined a number of other matters arising from the decision to call for limited expressions of interest for the awarding of exploration licences in respect of certain coal mining allocation areas.
