Australia blocks Chinese mining project contested by environmentalists


Mining company MMG wants to erect a tailings storage dam in the Tarkine rainforest in Tasmania

The Australian government responded to the demands of environmentalists and said on Monday (12) that it will require an environmental impact report to authorize a project linked to the mining company MMG (Group of Metals and Minerals), according to the newspaper The West Australian.

The company, which is majority owned by the Chinese government, plans to build a tailings storage dam in the Tarkine rainforest, which is in the Australian island state of Tasmania.

“MMG wants to destroy 285 hectares of rainforest and tea tree forest to dump 25 million cubic meters of toxic and acid mine tailings,” says a manifesto by the NGO Bob Brown Foundation, which coordinated the protests.

The project generated a wave of demonstrations that lasted for more than two months, with the arrest of at least 60 activists. “Our Foundation has been keeping drilling rigs out of the forest since December, but the company is moving forward with a request for federal environmental approvals,” the NGO recently said.

The government ended up listening to the arguments of the environmentalists, however, and Australia's Federal Department of the Environment decided that the proposal requires evaluation under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.

Bob Brown, who gives the NGO its name, was not fully satisfied with the decision, which he classified as "provisional". According to him, victory will only be achieved when the Australian Ministry of the Environment definitively cancels the project.
