Lisa France, Assistant Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, Has Responded to Allegations and Questions Put by Dominic Doblo in Relation to the Discharge of Water from the Mt Morgan Mine Pit. Mr Doblo,COs Claims Appeared in an Advertisement on Page 35 of yesterday,COs Edition of the Morning Bulletin. Ms France Has Responsibility for Abandoned Mines across Queensland


I WANT to correct misconceptions created by Dominic Doblo regarding recent water discharges at the abandoned Mount Morgan gold mine site.

Record heavy rainfall associated with ex-tropical cyclone Oswald has resulted in an uncontrolled discharge of water from the abandoned Mount Morgan Mine site which began on January 26.

However Mr DobloCOs assertion that these discharges have created an environmental disaster are untrue, as is his claim that the public is being C[pounds sterling]treated like a mushroomC[yen] and not being given information about water quality in the Dee River and other waterways.

The facts are that approximately 700 millimetres of rain has fallen over the Mt Morgan site since January 23. This was more rainfall than during the 2011 flood event, and represents close to the siteCOs annual rainfall falling in just three days.

Officers from the Department of Natural Resources and Mines are constantly monitoring the situation and confirm water is currently flowing from the mine open cut pit into the Dee River at a rate of approximately 40 megalitres per day.
