Media Release: Bob Brown Foundation protests Venture Minerals at Brisbane Mining Conference.

Bob Brown Foundation has joined with Brisbane based supporters in sending a message to potential investors that Venture Minerals’ plans to mine takayna/Tarkine has no social licence.

Venture Minerals’ who has plans to mine in reserved rainforest at Mt Lindsay and the Stanley River valley (Livingstone) was presenting at the Brisbane Mining investor conference. Bob Brown Foundation and takayna defenders in Brisbane have protested outside the conference, with two defenders taking to the stage with a banner during the keynote address of the conference.

“We think investors deserve to know that Venture Minerals is a toxic company so long as they have plans to mine in takayna/Tarkine, and so we are here to make sure they get that message”, said bob Brown Foundation takayna / Tarkine Campaigner Scott Jordan.

“Venture’s plans will destroy some of the world’s best temperate rainforest and wipe out breeding and feeding grounds for the endangered species Tasmanian Devil, Spotted-tailed Quoll and Wedge-tailed Eagle”.

“This rogue, bottom of the barrel company whose nearby Riley Creek mine failed just months after starting, have already been prosecuted for Commonwealth environmental law breaches and its communications to shareholders have been blatantly dishonest. Investing in Venture Minerals is not just bad for takayna, it is likely the worst investment decision you could make”.

Over the past two years, Bob Brown Foundation has been protesting and stopping work at Venture Minerals mining and exploration operations and investor forums.
