A corruption inquiry into mining licences issued under the former New South Wales Labor Government resumes today.

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) will resume the 'Operation Jasper' segment of a public inquiry into former Labor ministers. Operation Jasper is looking at circumstances surrounding a 2008 decision by former Mining Minister Ian Macdonald to open an area in the Bylong Valley for coal exploration. The inquiry has heard allegations he made decisions that put his Labor colleague Eddie Obeid and associates in the running to profit $100 million. This part of the public inquiry is likely to continue until the end of February.Ian Macdonald and Eddie Obeid are not expected to give evidence this week.
