NOT AT ANY COST
BSA represents landholder, community groups and individuals who are worried about the rapid and unrestrained development of the coal seam gas industry across Queensland.
We are committed to working with industry and government in the hope we can achieve a CSG industry that preserves our groundwater resources, our lifestyle, and our ability to produce food and fibre for future generations.
Science must inform development, impacts must be mitigated, and activities should not proceed where the risk it too high.
We urge our decision makers not to be blinded by the lust for royalties and jobs. The industry cannot proceed ‘at any cost’.

The Queensland government has recently removed long-standing public rights to object to mines. In shades of the Bjelke-Petersen era, Queensland mines minister Andrew Cripps made fundamental changes one minute before the bill was passed by the Parliament at 11:57pm.
Farmers on Queensland’s Darling Downs are hitting back at the inexorable expansion of coal seam gas (CSG) across their farms, claiming water resources are being damaged, farm operations interrupted and their way of life altered.
Defiant Mines Minister Andrew Cripps remains wedded to seeing through his controversial new mining act after staring down a tense meeting with worried landholders in Dalby last week.
