    Galilee Basin Mega Mines

    Drought prone Queensland can’t afford to give 100 billion litres of water* to Mega Mines in the Galilee Basin!

    We could be staring down the barrel of another water planning debacle like the Murray Darling Basin! 

    Tell the Premier to review the Water Licences

    280 signatures

    Dear Premier,

    A new report reveals that Galilee Basin coal mines would take over 100 billion litres of water from creeks and rivers in the region.

    Arid Western Central Queensland doesn’t have that amount of water to spare!

    We call on you to order a cumulative assessment of water impacts from all planned mines in the Galilee Basin and review all water permits that have already been granted.

    Help Stop Santos’ Coal Seam Gas Project in Narrabri

    1,037 signatures

    PETITION to the Deputy Premier, Independent Planning Commission and Planning Minister Rob Stokes:

    We oppose Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project across the Pilliga forest and farmland near Narrabri due to:

    • The risk and damage it would bring to the groundwater of the Great Artesian Basin
    • The hundreds of thousands of tonnes of salty waste it would produce, with no disposal solution
    • The spread of gasfields across the North West region’s farmland that would follow
    • The fact it would do zero to address high gas prices, in fact it could lock in higher prices.

  • Don’t Frack Queensland’s Outback Rivers

    At the last two elections, the Queensland Government promised to protect the mighty floodplains of the Channel Country in the Lake Eyre Basin.  

    But they haven’t delivered, and now we’ve discovered they’ve secretively granted special 15-year permits for gas exploration - across more than 348,000 hectares of floodplains.  

    Tell the Premier not to frack with our rivers and floodplains.

    1,103 signatures


    Petition:


    Dear Premier,

    I support our outback farmers and communities and ask that you do the same.

    Please support the clean green beef industry and thriving tourism sector in the Channel Country. 

    And protect the rivers and floodplains from fracking, and associated roads and pipelines, for good.

  • signed Mine Rehab Petition 2016-08-06 06:37:26 +1000

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.
