Between the GAB and the targeted coal seam are layers of dense rock called Aquatards. Aquatard is the name given to layers of rock, due to their characteristics to prevent the flow of liquid upwards and downwards beneath the surface. Therefore, the natural geology of this area, plays a big part in decreasing the likelihood of the project having an impact on the water.
