Barnett Takes First Shovel of Mt Karara

 From the Geraldton Guardian, Premier Colin Barnett proudly wields a shovel to dig the first sod of the new Karara BIF Magnetite mine, right next door to Mungada Ridge where mining has also recently been approved against the advice of the EPA.  Mining at Mt Karara was allowed on the condition that Mungada Ridge be protected to ensure conservation values lost at Karara will be protected.  To take action click on the “Take Action: Email Barnett” tag at the top of this blog. 

On the same day the Premier was in The West Australian digging the first symbolic sod out of Barrow Island Nature Reserve, marking the start of construction of the new Gorgon LNG facilities on the island.
