Mining and Arkaroola Sanctuary

Posted on: September 8, 2009

The not too distant future will show that mining permitted in the fertile farmlands that are capable of food production is another serious flaw in the South Australian Mining Act. While it is universally held that the possession of land does not automatically entitle the owner to do what he likes with it, the Mining Act has created exactly this situation for miners to take possession.

The subsequent disruption to the production of food will have far greater impact as the world population edges toward 8.75 billion consuming ever increasing amounts of resources. Such a ban applied to Arkaroola would be a passive acknowledgement of a national treasure but a ban applied to mining takeover of productive farmlands acknowledges that the world must first be fed.
