To whom it may concern:
The declining of Trans Tasman Resources' marine consent application yesterday has come as a shock and a surprise, Straterra says.
“Mining is vital to the way we live, and we believe it is time New Zealanders had the facts about how mining is integrated into their everyday lives,” announced Straterra CEO Chris Baker, launching a Minerals Briefing Paper in Wellington tonight, at Parliament.
New Zealanders’ strong show of support for minerals exploration sends a much-needed, positive signal to investors in resources, Straterra says.
Straterra welcomed the announcement today made by New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals inviting tenders for metallic mineral exploration permits in Northland.
