The Northern Territory has released its long-awaited reforms to the NT's mining laws.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fix the system that led to environmental disasters like McArthur River Mine.
Amongst other things, the reforms relocate many regulatory powers within the environment department. This is entirely appropriate.
But we know the mining lobby fights tooth and nail to resist accountability. That's why these reforms are under threat.
Will you write to the relevant Ministers- Minister for Mining Nicole Manison, and Minister for Environment Lauren Moss- today and back the reforms in? This is a crucial moment to clean up our mining regulation, we need to ensure the industry doesn't interfere at the last minute.
