Mining: International Developments with Domestic Significance

John Southalan, Melanie Noid

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    International legal developments have increasing relevance for mining operations and mining law. While regulation of the soil and its resources remains quintessentially domestic law, broader responsibilities for business and its value chains involves law beyond WA’s Mining Act 1978. The Commonwealth’s recent Modern Slavery Act 2018 is one example, but international standards and associated mechanisms have far wider application and implications for WA resources lawyers.
