Gerry was so inspired he decided to tell a mining conference that he wanted to open up our best conservation land for mining.

Reasonable access to the mineral estate in Crown-owned land, particularly conservation land, is a key issue. … Some of the areas within Schedule 4 [which includes National Parks] are known to host significant [mining] potential…

Very inspirational indeed Gerry – it’s up there with sexy coal!
