OK, I'll throw this out as scenario. Let's say the DMP has to get it's costs covered by SOMEONE. Let's say leaseholders are not getting much in spite of paying a lot - POW fees, DMP rent, Shire rates, Aboriginal fees and costs etc. They protest. The DMO drops the fees. Let's see, "who else can we hit for the money?" says the DMP.

"Oh look here,,,,,,,,,,only 25 dollars for a Section 40e for 3 months access to an Exploration Licence (E). Well we can put that up for starters, how 500 dollars". And look, only 25 dollars for a Miner's Right, well that can go up to 100 bucks PER YEAR for another few bob. Yep that'll raise a bit towards our budget problem".

Probable? Unlikely. Possible? Yes. affraid

Just saying,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rick Wilson is a federal mp and as this is a state issue best keep it to them.
Below is a link to the member list which includes the contact details of each one of them.

Either way, still bombard the bastards regardless of their political party.  
They like to keep telling us that we employ them, then make the bastards work for it.
To be honest, I don't think you will get much joy from them, they are bound by the party line.  
but ya never know, if enough pressure is put on, they might start to think for them selves.
but you also have to remember this, "Who", holds the seats in the areas where we go.  if we don't live in their electorate, you won't get much of a response.
so just send an email to your local member of the WA Parliament.  you can get the full list of email addresses from here

Put another way,,,,,,,,,but read it carefully as it's nearly the same:



OK, I'll throw this out as another scenario. Let's say the DMP has to get it's costs covered by SOMEONE. Let's say leaseholders are not getting much in spite of paying a lot - POW fees, DMP rent, Shire rates, Aboriginal fees and costs etc. They protest. The DMO doesn't back down and leaseholders get stuck with it. "Well we got away with that one, let's see, who else can we hit for money?" says the DMP.

"Oh look here,,,,,,,,,,only 25 dollars for a Section 40e for 3 months access to an Exploration Licence (E). Well we can put that up for starters, how about 500 dollars". And look, only 25 dollars for a Miner's Right, well that can go up to 100 bucks PER YEAR for another few bob. Yep that'll raise a bit towards our budget problem".

You can ask all the questions you like, getting an answer is another question.
