Mining history

Mining history

King Island, Tasmania, Australia

The history of scheelite mining stops at 1990 on this sign.

Things may be changing for King Island with the planned return of scheelite mining via a joint venture with Chinese interests. I understand the wish for economic development on King Island however I have grave fears for the most important King Island value, a pristine environment.
