Comment on Liam Jurrah abandons bail application by Ian Sharp.

Strange comment from Steve Smedley. Based on peculiar assumption about the role of the media. The Jarrah case raises lots of issues that people of central Asutralia need to confront and seek to deal with. I doubt if Erwin will comply with Steve’s suggestion. Good luck with getting southern media to go along. I wonder if someone has hacked Steve’s laptop?

Value of NT mineral production highest ever
In 2017-18 our mineral resource exports, including base metals, earned Australia more than $220bn (total exports exceeded $400bn for the first time).
Hard to judge (because NT figure quoted here doesn’t include oil and gas, and not all Australian production is exported) but it still seems the NT’s production value of $5bn is not much.
On the upside that indicates there is a huge potential for future exploration and development.
