WA uranium ban spares four projects already under way

The State Government says it will not stand in the way of previously approved projects

The State Government has announced a blanket ban on uranium mining in WA, but has revealed it will not stand in the way of four previously approved projects.

But four already approved projects - Toro Energy's Wiluna project, Cameco's Kintyre and Yeelirrie projects, and Vimy Resources' Mulga Rock project - will not fall under the ban for legal reasons.

Labor, which banned uranium mining when last in power between 2002 and 2008, said it had received advice it could not legally deny secondary approvals for the goal of frustrating approvals already granted.

Bayern Munich deny interest in Ronaldo
Ronaldo isn't happy about the Spanish authorities' intention to prosecute him for allegedly evading €12 million's worth in taxes. Madrid's state prosecutor has alleged Ronaldo used an offshore company to hide a portion of his income from the tax office.

"In making this decision, the McGowan government has carefully considered the potential liability risk for WA taxpayers", Mr Johnston said.

"Clearly the Labor government had a policy opposed to uranium mining and if there is an opportunity for that policy to be implemented we will".

Director Piers Verstegen said Tuesday CCWA believed there were "serious legal flaws in the way these approvals were granted by the Barnett [Liberal] government" and vowed to contest them "at every stage of the process, including through pursuing legal options".

Israel denies Daesh link to Jerusalem attacks
The three men were armed with knives and an automatic weapon and carried out near-simultaneous attacks at two locations. The Islamic State issued a statement taking responsibility for the stabbing and shooting attacks Friday evening.

"We made a commitment that all uranium mining projects with state ministerial approvals will be able to continue, providing they meet all planning approvals".

The WA Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) stated that multiple secondary approvals are still needed over the life of these projects.

Cameco's Yeelirrie mine was initially knocked back by the Environmental Protection Authority due to the threat it posed to microscopic stygofauna present at the site.

Berger edged out Charl Schwartzel and Whee Kim by one. "I just battled so hard today and played so good, I just can't be happier". Jutanugarn finished with a 3-under 69 in the final round and was tied with Thompson (72) and Chun (70) at 17-under 271.

Shipping via Port Adelaide is proposed for all four projects.
