Whanganui Chronicle - - News -

Ki­wis Against Seabed Min­ing (KASM), Ngāti Ruanui, Ngā Rauru, For­est & Bird, the Taranaki/Whanganui Con­ser­va­tion Board and fish­eries groups all want to be in­volved in an Ap­peal Court case as min­ing com­pany Trans-Tas­man Re­sources seeks to mine iron-sand in the South Taranaki Bight. Later this month the court will de­cide whether there is enough pub­lic in­ter­est for the case in go ahead. If it does it will prob­a­bly be heard next year, KASM chair­woman Cindy Bax­ter says. Her group is ap­peal­ing for do­na­tions to help pay court and le­gal costs.
