Mining bill passes SA parliament

By: AAP

A controversial mining bill has passed the South Australian parliament refining access to farming land by exploration companies.

The bill passed the upper house on Thursday with the Liberal government declaring it will increase landowner rights, improve SA’s competitiveness in mining and agricultural sectors and promote further investment.

“The changes mean landowners will have more time, more legal support, increased access to justice and stronger protections when approached by exploration and mining companies,” Energy and Mining Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan said.
