Keith,
I enjoyed your article on the conflict between mining and agriculture. You raised some great points particularly the lack of a 3rd party audit of environmental impact assessments, and the biases of mining companies when conducting them.

I'd be interested to hear your opinion on whether you think, with proper regulations in place, mining companies could be prompted to reclaim mined areas to a quality acceptable for agriculture so overtime the two could coexist? As mining and mining companies can offer the money for infrastructure and development do you think agriculture in a region could actually benefit from this in the long term?

Cheers,
Jamie
