  • MORE INFORMATION

    The second trough in the series, Collusion, references the huge political power that big mining companies wield and the lack of integrity to be found in environmental impact studies (and their implementation) with numerous politicians at all levels of government willing to do deals with mining companies. With the go ahead being given to Adani, other companies with leases in the area like Gina Rinehart’s company GVK Hancock and Clive Palmer’s Waratah Coal (which will put the Bimblebox Nature Reserve under a huge environmental threat), are more confident of gaining approvals.
