Oz mining tax under threat

first_img MINING groups are nervously awaiting the results of a closely fought election in Australia, as current Prime Minister and mining tax enthusiast Julia Gillard fights to keep her job. Gillard travelled to Western Australia yesterday, where the 30 per cent mining supertax is set to come into force in 2012, to appeal to voters ahead of the election on Saturday. Mining giants Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Xstrata spent months fighting with the Labour government to reduce the levy on mining operations, leading to Gillard ousting former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd as leader in June. Gillard struck a deal with the companies to bring in a lesser charge, though opposition politicians in Australia have vowed to scrap the tax if they take power at the weekend. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic Mirrorautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comOpulent ExpressNewborn Quadruplets Left Doctors Staggered — They Are One In A MillionOpulent ExpressMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite Herald KCS-content Oz mining tax under threat Sharecenter_img Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners ‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp Tags: NULL Wednesday 18 August 2010 8:06 pmlast_img
