Banded Ironstones to be Mined Against EPA Advice

In November the State Government gave approval for iron ore mining at Mungada Ridge in WA’s midwest, against the advice of the EPA and in stark contrast to the previous Government’s reccomendation that the ridge be declared an A-Class reserve, the highest level of conservation protection available. Christal from RTRFM understorey did this extended interview with Tim Nicol from the Conservation Council of WA (the squid!)

Note this interview has been slightly edited to fit within the 10mins allowed on YouTube.  The full interview can be found at the RTRFM understorey webpage. Interview was broadcast on the 18th November.
