Min­ing bill re­port

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

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.
