Consultation through committees and associations

In order to address the broad range of concerns that accompany the sensitive issue of uranium mining it is necessary to have a system of open consultation with all interested parties including the Aboriginal community, government, industry, the general community and special interest groups.

ARRAC & ARRTC

Two specialised committees have been established under the Environment Protection (Alligator Rivers Regions) Act 1978 to facilitate communications between all interest groups:

Meetings

ARRAC meets twice a year and provides a forum for consultation and information exchange on issues related to the regulation and supervision of uranium mining activities in the Alligator Rivers Region.

ARRTC also meets twice a year and provides a forum for review of environment research undertaken by SSD, mining companies and others into the environmental impacts of uranium on the Alligator Rivers Region.
