Comment on 1.6b mining projects inching towards reality by Dr Who.

Whilst I haven’t looked into the phosphate situation, I heard a few years ago it was going to be a big problem, I would suggest if resources of phosphate are developed here in Australia, it is NOT exported but kept here.
I dare say, sadly, that we will see most of it exported for short term gain for multinationals, until it is depleted. Then what?

How many more studies? Anyone who takes an interest over the years knows the answers, might as well get the $12 million in cash and throw it into the wind from the top of Uluru. Talk about Dumb and Dumber. I’m really starting to not care any more as I get older. Go for it and waste as much as you can to look good, even that’s wearing a bit thin.

@ Peter: I can’t think of any state that has reduced car rego, power, water etc when the mining royalties come in.
I have friends in WA and the previous government went on a spending spree, now the state is in a massive debt problem and fees / costs are going up.
The NT I’m guessing would be no different, apart from the fact our water would be at serious risk from fracking.
