Mining and Environmental Law – Every State in our country has in-place legislation that governs mining and exploration law, including titles. Queensland is richly endowed with minerals and is a coal powerhouse. Without this industry our country would grind to a standstill. It is a misconception that mining is terrible for the environment, without mining we would not produce the minerals required for the race to a carbon neutral economy. Today’s lithium mining might be tomorrow’s vanadium. Phosphate, another mineral found in Queensland is a key ingredient for agriculture in our arid country.
