This engaging and informative documentary film features the epic 8-year battle by the community of Glenaladale to stop a radioactive mineral-sand mine planned for their district by Kalbar Resources Limited. The film shows the impact on local farmers who under current mining laws have no power to stop a mining company from taking their land. It also examines how mining companies try to influence local politics and community attitudes, and the failure of the government mining regulator to enforce the laws that protect the community and environment.
Mine-Field also examines the devastating impact of mining on three other Victoria rural communities, at Kanagulk, Stawell and Bendigo. This film is a wake-up call to all Victoria rural communities impacted by mineral exploration leases as the government tries to increase mining in the state. Locally that includes the communities of Wairewa, Wombat Creek, Nowa Nowa, Bruthen, Sarsfield, Mossiface, Tambo Upper, Buchan, Bendoc and Mallacoota.
