Do You Dig National Parks?
It is quite possible that one day the Snowdonia National Park will contain one of the world's largest open cast mines. The site might cover up to ten square miles of the Park with waste tips as high as St Paul 's.
Precise details of plans by mining companies are still unknown. One of the largest involved, Rio Tinto-Zinc, has promised wide discussion and already made available enough information for the broad implications of such mining to be considered.
However, many feel mining on this scale is incompatible with the spirit and purpose of the National Parks Act. The application now being made by RTZ might well turn out to be a test case for the survival of all Parks. This film is a case study of RTZ'S application and its implications. It asks whether economic benefits from mining and environmental priorities have been clearly defined.
Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
The film will be followed by a studio discussion to which mining and conservation interests have been invited.
