Iron ore mine to go ahead in Tasmania after legal delay

Venture Minerals will be able to call an end to the trading halt with a Federal Court ruling in favour of the Riley Creek project.

The embattled company has been in a trading halt since August last year, due to a legal battle with the Save the Tarkine environmental group, which has tried to block plans to go ahead with the proposed iron ore and tungsten mine at Riley Creek, near Tullah in Tasmania.

Reports by the state’s Environmental Protection Agency revealed that only five Tasmanian Devils would be disturbed by the Riley Mine.

The Venture Minerals website states that the company is a partner with the Save the Tasmanian Devil program, and that all employees of Venture Minerals have become volunteer Devil Facial Tumour Disease monitors, and also remove waste and roadkill from road verges to help prevent motor vehicle Devil fatalities.

The case presented by Save the Tarkine was characterised as “frivolous”, with Justice Richard Tracey declaring that the environmental group had “failed to make good any of its grounds”, and should pay costs to the Commonwealth and Venture Minerals.-from internet
