So what is all the fuss about

Dig baby DigThe Government has released details of the proposed DOC lands to do exploration and possibly mine for resources on.

I am underwhelmed I must say. I mad to look very, very hard on both the North Island and South Island maps (look for the huge swathes of pink on the maps, everything that is green or gray is untouched). The green lobby and Labour are clearly scare-mongering.

Not a single one of the places that they mentioned are even in the suggested areas of operation. Frankly moaning about Thames and Broken Hills in the Coromandel is farcical. They have been mined before, in fact there was a fricken gold rush in Coromandel. Thames existed because of gold.

Reef that gold out and do it now. We owe it to New Zealand.
