Darwin Harbour mining wastewater plan shelved

Sounds like a potential disaster if it had gone ahead ... https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-04-07/ ... /100046706

Separately though, development plans for Middle Arm ... "NT Government tender documents reveal further details about potential interest in the Middle Arm site for ammonia production, a possible urea plant, a methanol plant, mercury processing, hydrogen production and a minerals refinery for iron ore, titanium and vanadium." ... from here https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-03/ ... s/12943406

They gave licences in Tasmania to heavy industry to release waste into the lower Derwent River and Hobart's estuary now has some of the most contaminated sediment in the world, people can no longer safely eat the fish, could take decades to recover.
