The premier of Western Australia  Mark McGowan is calling for mining companies (in the plural) to "lift their standards".    

Fortescue Metals Group looks like an interesting company.   Dividend yield 10.4%  PE ratio = 9.7.  The chart is to die for.

The decision to blast through a 46,000-year-old sacred Aboriginal site cost some top jobs. That doesn’t mean the company has a clean slate.


Australia has been, at least up until now, a very mining friendly jurisdiction.   Has this changed?

“I threatened Tony Abbott to shirtfront him about this issue… I’m so determined to give these people a voice… I am prepared to go and squirrel grip, the prime minister,” said Lazarus, according to The Australian.

“If that doesn’t work I’ve got other things up my sleeves such as the grapple tackle, the chicken wing and even the crusher tackle. If that doesn’t work I’m prepared to use the Hopoate tackles.”

You know the cameraman was setting up our prime minister. The others are pretty good, too.
