Morning gents,

I used to post on Aussie-Elises, but stopped after their troubles in the new year (more than anything, was just very confused). Did want to swing by and pick their brains, but they seem to have totally vanished

Anyway, I think it was Ash who used to post links to this, place, so pardon my intrustion, but, I was wondering if I might be able to ask a quick question of you allÖ

Hereís the thing, Iím at university in the UK, Iím British but got to know some of you guys down under though the Lotus community over this side of the world. Anyway, hereís the thingÖ

Iím writing an economics paper at the moment, and I was just wondering if any of you guys recall any government legislation that is specifically pro-mining companies, or perhaps an story about mining companies putting pressure on Aussie govt. ???

Iím sure I remember reading something about this last year, but, canít seem to find anything now.

Any help or ideas would be massively appreciated.

David

Google for Chinese investment in Australian mines. That'll give you a help of politically related information on both international and local Govt pressures to get new mines up and running.
C'mon, do it!

Business Review Weekly has run a fair few stories as of late, which may be a good point of call for you.

Otherwise, Australian Financial Review. Goodle away though, and good luck! :P

Are you looking at it from an ecologial perspective, taxation, ownership?  :confused:
