The LRMA family Xmas party will start at 1pm this Saturday 18 November 2017. It will be held at the Funeral Advisory shed behind the LRMA office.

It will be a great day with the usual fun and games and the weather will be cool for a pleasant change. All members and their family are welcome. BBQ lunch and drinks supplied.

We suggest you park at the LRMA office and walk around the back to the shed. Or if you plan on drinking do not bring a car at all! We also suggest you bring your own chair.

Please bring a gift under $20 for each child for Santa Claus to distribute.


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.
