QUESTIONS - Wednesday 26 February 1992 the names of creeks. Speaking as a pastoralist, I can indicate that I receive considerable mail from mining companies. We will not go into details at this stage but it is an issue. What is provided is simply some coordinates with squares or irregular shapes drawn around them. One has then to attempt to relate that to the property to determine whether or not the notice relates to an area about which one may have some concerns. If I can take the member for Nelson's question on notice, perhaps improvements can be made in the way in which these coordinates and the maps are advertised in the press ... Mrs Padgham-Purich: I think your people in the Department of Mines and Energy are doing it already. Mr COULTER: I think they are too, Mr Speaker, and that is the reason why I am offering to do it. We will endeavour to come up with better descriptions. That may lead to the mining application section of the paper being read by more people and better understood in the future. 690
