Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 19, 1971 Bauxite mine has huge seam NHULUNBUY, Australia (Router) A North Australian wilderness that for thousands of years has heard only the thump- ing of kangaroos now resounds to excavators and trucks at a giant bauxite mine. A Swiss-Austral- Ian aluminium project is tap- ping a proven reserve of 250 million tons of the rich red min- eral. Located on the Gove penin- sula, 400 miles east of Darwin, the project was conceived after mineral leases were granted seven years ago. Last year, Aborigines from the nearby Yirrakala mission claimed ownership of all the land covered by the mineral lease. The Northern Territory Supreme Court ruled they had no claim, but said the evidence showed "clans belong to the land." Despite the loss of the court case, the Aborigines from the mission will receive royalties from the Gove project. The group of Aus- tralian companies and Swiss Al- uminium of esti- mated that witliin a few years they will be paying more than billion annually. In recent weeks, the Aborigi- nes in the area have indicated that they will seek a mining lease to cover all the Gove pen- insula, except the 400 square miles held by the Gove part- ners. The 250 million tons of bauxite can supply the aluminium plant here for the next 80 years. When the feasibility study was presented to the Australian gov- ernment in 1968, the partners agreed to contract for cargo wharves, power station, bauxite treatment plant, crushing plant, and conveyor system carrying the bauxite 12 miles to the stockpiles. In addition, they were to build a fully air-conditioned town for more than people, includ- ing a 64-bed hospital and schools.
