agree totally why touch pristine oz parks, cant they leave the country alone rather than chop up any more to sell overseas

In case you and other people missed it, this project is outside the park, the area having been excised back in 1994 in the wake of the discovery of the uranium in a drilling program some years before.
Why you would be allowed to drill in a national park in the first place is another question.
The fact that after all these years it is still only a proposal gives some hope to those up us who are not big fans of uranium mining.

Cheers

Hi

I think at the time the Government passed some law that allowed exploration within three specific national parks. Not sure of all three but D'Entrecasteaux was one of them (I was Exploration Geo on that one), I am assuming Rudall was another. Not allowed under current laws though lower class reserves are OK (generally speaking). Unfortunate fact of life is that (economic) mineral resources are located where you find them, some of these places also have other values so conflict arises.

Cheers

Greg, how would you access a plan of the proposed pit within the Kintire lease? I'd love to see just where it sits given some of the amazing petroglyphs sites we found on the western edge of the area where it borders the first of the Throsell Ranges.

Hello - thought you'd be out chasing beaver...anyway

Plans are provided in the various ERMP/Scoping documents - plus you could download the tenement boundaries from the DMP website...but I have taken the liberty to do some of this work for you...below is a map of the "Project Area" plotted on the Hema Rudall River map sheet.



Here is a plan of the project area in more detail showing Pit location and other infrastructure (this may not be 100% current as mining engineers have a habit of changing the location of everything to keep themselves in a job :)



Looks like its located more on the "flats" than in the ranges. 250K Map

Thanks Greg. We were fortunate enough to explore this area back in 2008 before they set up survey camp in 2010. The area on the western boundary of the lease has some significant sites with great glyphs. Blog below covers a few photos from the area. I'd hate to think of them being destroyed given their cultural and historical significance.
