Fifty-two percent or 4,000 hectares of Bimblebox will be cleared to make way for this massive open cut mine. The remainder of the Nature Refuge will be at risk of subsidence due to underground mining. This campaign calls on the State government to close an environmental offset "loophole".
This campaign focussed on protecting Bimblebox Nature Refuge (QLD) from mining. It also looked at broader protections "Thus our combined efforts to safeguard Bimblebox Nature Refuge need eventually to take this test case to the point where we achieve proper legislation that will protect all high biodiversity value areas in Queensland, not only National Parks."
