TRANS TASMAN RESOURCES LIMITED APPLICATION FOR IRON SAND MINING


“Mai te rangi ki te whenua, mai uta ki tai, ko nga mea katoa e tapu ana, Ngaa Rauru Kiitahi ki a mau, ki a ita”.

Te Kaahui o Rauru OPPOSES the application by Trans Tasman Mining to mine our seabeds.  We stand together with other iwi, individuals and organisations to STOP this destructive activity from entering our takiwa.  Our opposition is based on the cultural and environmental breaches and negative effects this activity will have on Tangaroa. 


Please see the buttons adjacent if you would like to read the submission Te Kaahui o Rauru wrote in opposition to the application, the additional submission on the plume made after the dates were extended, and also the supporting expert evidence that will be given when we attend hearings in February.​​​​​​​​​​
