Australian Mining Industry Annual Lecture 2017


Wednesday, 7 June 2017. Arthur Streeton Auditorium, Sofitel on Collins, Melbourne.

The lecture, sponsored by BHP Billiton, was established in 2015 as an initiative of the MCA to promote the role and contribution of the minerals industry in Australia.  The inaugural lecture was delivered by the distinguished historian Professor Geoffrey Blainey AC on the topic ‘Mining and the Australian People – the long view’.

The event highlights the industry’s leading role in indigenous economic environment as the nation commemorates the 25th anniversary (3/6/1992) of the Mabo decision and the 50th anniversary of the indigenous right to vote in the 1967 referendum (27/5/67).  It positions the MCA in the public policy sphere. It is a good news story that showcases how the mining industry has responsible procurement, addresses indigenous issues and mining best practices.

IT’S TIME TO KICK AUSTRALIA’S NUCLEAR PROHIBITION INTO THE BIN


Removing the prohibition on nuclear power


It's time to rethink Australia's ban on nuclear power.

Nuclear energy was banned less than two decades ago in Australia, a decision that has cost the nation significant global investment and scientific collaboration on new nuclear technologies.

The good news is the nuclear ban can be reversed with a single amendment to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Commonwealth).

The removal of four words – ‘a nuclear power plant’ – in Section 140A(1)(b) would allow nuclear industries to be considered for development in Australia. Any nuclear projects would still have to meet Australia’s stringent
environmental and safety requirements.

Nuclear energy is a readily deployable, zero emissions, baseload energy and it shouldn’t be excluded from Australia’s energy mix.

It has met energy challenges around the world, powers more than 30 economies and been deployed at substantial scale within a decade in countries such as the UAE.
