Rush to get cattle out of darwin port and to the west,” says D’Arcy. “That’s what we want. We want to make sure the people of our country have that choice to choose from.
“You know, that’s a beautiful idea. But we’ve got to do things differently. We’ve got to make sure that we keep our mouths shut and give people a choice, and we have to ensure that we are not using people’s natural resources.”
If the Port of Darwin does get the permit to build the mine it is expected to create enough jobs for about 1,100 people.
