The government of 50 years ago was in all probability warned of the consequences, as they are, even in to-day's mining undertakings. BUT, NO , this is "Development and Progress", they tell us. It is economics and will bring jobs.
Now, we know different.! The consequences are indeed grim. And rectification, if possible, will be costly. Economics,be damned. This was a tragedy just waiting to happen. It sure isn't Progress!
There is a stern lesson here. Will Government(s) pay attention and Learn? I have my doubts.
