Old story, but shows what happens when remote area tourism and fishing comes up against mining interests ... http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2016-0 ... ne/7306526

It’s also my understanding they they were selling the gravel pulled out of these illegally cleared qurries to other contractors in the area. Reckon they would have made a lot more then the 7.5k fine.
