Mining bill report
A report on the Mining Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 has been handed down with 26 finds and 18 recommendations, many made by junior miners and prospectors.
Liberal Member for Mining and Pastoral Mark Lewis said it was pleasing to see several recommendations and findings made by the committee in the report.
“Prospectors and small miners who believed they would be adversely affected by the Bill made a number of the 33 submissions. The recommendations and findings made by the committee address many of the concerns raised by the prospectors and small miners,” he said.
The industry awaits the Government’s response.
