Bruce and Annette Currie - farmers Jericho

Last year Bruce and Annette Currie went to the QLD Land Court to protect their groundwater and therefore their cattle business from a mining development nearby. This huge and courageous effort resulted in a number of extra conditions being placed on the project to monitor and hopefully protect neighbour's groundwater. 

Under proposed changes to the Mineral Resources Act neighbouring landholders will no longer have the right to object to a mining lease, taking away the chance for the independent judiciary to make sure everyone gets a fair hearing.
