It refers to the mining of uranium at
Roxby Downs in South Australia.
Approval of this mine will mean
the largest open cut mine in the world.

"If approved this mine will be the largest open cut mine in the world.
One million tonnes of rock will be removed every day for four years,

boosting the state's total green house gas emissions by 10-12%"
said Senator Scott Ludlam of The Greens.
