Sometimes licence conditions for project approvals can cause damage. On this radioactive show, we look at the damage Vimy Resources is causing in their attempt to get approval to mine uranium at Mulga Rock, and how conditions set by the Malaysian Government have got Lynas in a rush to process Rare Earths in WA.
We hear from Nuclear Free Campaigner at the Conservation Council of WA, Mia Pepper, about the Vimy Resources plan to establish WA’s first ever uranium mine at Mulga Rock, and how the community is determined to stop it. Vimy are destroying the habitat of the endangered Sandill Dunnart. You can read the CCWA media release about it here. The Vimy Resources AGM will be held on Friday 26th Nov 1.30 AEST. Go to Nuclear Free WA on FB for the event link for the livestream of the AGM.
We also hear from Lee Tan, Policy Coordinator at Aid/Watch, about the current status of the proposal from Australian rare earth miner Lynas to establish a processing facility and waste dump near Kalgoorlie and the impacts these operators have overseas.
