COMMUNAL MULLOCK DUMPS
The Minister for Resources, Don Harwin, MLC has advised 42 communal mullock dumps will be exempt from the requirement to be on title for a period of two years. The LRMA believes this exemption covers all current communal mullock dumps.
The Division of Resources & Geoscience received 281 industry submissions and 120 telephone enquiries. Thank you very much to all our members who took the time to complete the form and nominate all the communal waste dumps as being necessary for the industry to dump and win back mullock for rehabilitation.
The exemption will expire on 15 November 2019 and in the meantime the Division of Resources & Geoscience will be consulting the LRMA to develop potential long-term frameworks. The industry has a temporary reprieve and the LRMA will continue to lobby for a practical outcome.
Your LRMA membership for the 2017/2018 financial year is now well and truly overdue. If you have not already done so please renew as soon as possible.
The following have applied for membership of the LRMA. If any member has an objection to any of these membership applications please contact the LRMA office and your objection will be treated with the strictest of confidence.
