Stradbroke Island Sandmining


A report on last nights ABC 7.30 Report revealed confidential documents obtained by the ABC showed that the State Government intended to change legislation to allow sand mining at the Enterprise mine to continue beyond its current closure date of 2019. This apparently had been done without consultation with the Quandamooka people, who have native title over the area in question.

The peak environmental groups have put out a media release strongly condemning the State Governments position.
