To Mine or not to Mine

That is the question.

BHP and NSW Minister Macdonald last week issued a self congratulatory Press Release, claiming to have now excluded the Caroona Exploration Area floodplains from the ravages of mining by virtue of changes to the BHP Exploration Licence. Without any prior consultation with CCAG, regrettably the statement was typically circumspect in its wording, as we have to come to expect.

CCAG spokesperson, Tim Duddy, has again called on BHP to simply rule out all mining on or under the floodplains, full stop.
No qualification.
No double talk.
This is what the community wants.
