Sand mining truck straddie

Sand mining truck straddie

Consolidated Rutile Limited subsidiary, Queensland Construction Materials, was set up to export sand from NSI – in addition to the minerals that CRL takes. But in August 2008, Redland City Council unanimously rejected a development application to export sand for sale as construction material, on the basis that Stradbroke Island’s future lies with conservation and tourism, not mining or quarrying. CRL/QCM are appealing the decision in the Planning and Environment Court. SIMO and FOSI are among 11 co-respondents in the case. The hearing of preliminary points took place in Brisbane on 6 and 7 April. The parties are now awaiting the judge’s decision. (June 2009)
