Mining company Venture Minerals is planning an open-cut tin mine at Mount Lindsay in this very special region of northwest Tasmania. If it goes ahead, their proposed mine will destroy huge swathes of ancient rainforest.

Thank you for your support. Your actions will help protect the spectacular Tarkine forest from the menace of mining. The Tarkine's ancient rainforest is threatened with land clearing and its precious habitat decimated for Venture Minerals' mines in the next few months. Thank you for making a submission.
thanks Cal

I wasn't surprised to read that a large corporation was going to destroy another area of our planet for the sake of making a profit, but I WAS surprised to learn that a rainforest has actually survived long enough to be considered "ancient"! Well, they'll take care of that soon enough. Nothing is sacred when there's a profit to be made.

Signed and noted. Thanks for bringing this opportunity to us, Cal!

Tried to sign but the petition must be closed. The website has an error message when I try to submit my signature. This is worthy of my signature so I will try the site later.
