    we should proceed to extract ever increasing quantities of coal Perhaps the burden of historical legalities is preventing us from dealing with serious present realities In that case let us put our minds and efforts into rectifying these flawed methods rather than wasting precious time and energy on charades like this EIS process Ian Hoch Alpha Bimblebox in central Queensland media November 2010 The article Threat to nature refuge owner pleads with mining magnate appeared in the Morning Bulletin on November 20 2010 It was based on a longer article by Simon Green which ran as the page one lead of the Central Queensland News on November 19 2010 Bimblebox rejecting not pleading was written as a letter to the editor in response to the above article by the Bimblebox team It appeared in the Central Queensland News on November 29 2010 A similar letter Win for mines is loss for us was published in The Morning Bulletin the same week Queensland Country Life February 2009 Below is a powerful letter that appeared in the Queensland Country Life in February 2009 Please note the petition is no longer running Dear Sir Queensland Country Life has given excellent coverage of the all too real threat to grazing and farming land from mining interests As reported mining holds an absolute right over virtually all other land uses The more careful sustainable use of our natural resources is disregarded when confronted by large scale mining Too often primary production and conservation are seen as contradictory when in fact many agricultural and grazing properties are also important conservation areas Some are covered by perpetual Nature Refuge Agreements signed between landholders and the state government to permanently preserve the land s ecological values As secure as they may seem at the time these agreements are meaningless in the face of mining interests The protection of vital habitats and biodiversity in Nature Refuges is apparently only worthwhile if there s no coal beneath them When coal is found the refuges are in effect regarded as mere overburden Landowners are encouraged and supported by the Environment Protection Agency now DERM to safeguard remnant vegetation Similarly recognition and assistance is given for time and money spent controlling feral animals and weeds But these efforts mean little when a mining company stakes a claim It is astonishing that those few privately owned sanctuaries left to support native flora and fauna can be sacrificed for coal with all we know about species extinction carbon pollution and fickle global markets Currently nearly 100 Nature Refuges in Queensland are subject to mineral exploration permits about half of these for coal One refuge in the state s central west is the stage for a tragic farce in which the state government acts as cheer squad for the potential destruction of land and native habitats they previously helped protect Bimblebox Nature Refuge 50 km north west of Alpha was bought in 2001 with support from the Federal Government for inclusion in the National Reserve
