LA4030 - Mining and Resources Law and Governance
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Business, Law & Governance
Australia's mining boom has seen the landscape - literally and figuratively - change
significantly. In the face of promised economic benefits, mineral resources have competed
with the natural environment and water resources, and on many occasions also with
landowners, local communities and traditional owners of land. This subject looks critically
at the regulatory frameworks for mining and natural resources in terms of sustainability.
It canvasses the relationship between minerals, natural resources and land, the environmental
and social consequences of their exploitation, and the economic issues that inform
the legislative and broader governance framework.
- Find and apply the law relevant to mining and resource exploitation with reference
to particular case studies;
- Evaluate the regulatory frameworks for mineral and natural resource exploitation in
the Australian context in terms of sustainability.
