Xstrata appeals McArthur River Supreme Court decision

Xstrata today announced its intention to appeal the Supreme Court decsion that foundin favor of the Traditional owners in ruling that the NT Government’s mining aproval was invalid.

Unfortunately that is all we can tell you at this point as mcarthurriver was refused access to the media briefing – hopefully Xstrata will release more information as to why they are appealing.

It is hard to understand the move given the NT Government changed the law to allow the mine to proceed.

  1. Maybe they think they’ve got a good chance of grinding our only recourse into the dust, since the Government has shown where their loyalties lie.
    With any luck the courts won’t look favorably on such an appeal given the disregard the government has already shown for the judges decision.
