MINISTER FOR RESOURCES & ENERGY ANNOUNCED
We were very pleased to learn late last week that The Hon. Anthony Roberts, MP has been reappointed as the Minister for Resources and Energy in the new Baird cabinet.

Since the Hon. Anthony Roberts, MP has been Minister for Resources and Energy he has rearranged the Division of Resources and Energy and we have noticed a change of attitude towards the opal industry. Under Minister Robertís leadership we are hopeful the opal industry will continue to be treated with respect and appreciated for the contribution it makes to our local, regional and State economy.

In his last term Minister Roberts put in place the legislation enabling the Minister to set the amount of landholder compensation and for the Division of Resources and Energy to collect the compensation from miners on grant and renewal of title and distribute it to the landholders. This was a major step forward and resolved a long standing issue.

The new compensation regime was introduced on 1 January 2015 as was the reinstatement of the industry infrastructure levies also supported by Minister Roberts.
