Western Australia’s Court of Appeal has ruled in favour of Onslow Resources in the latest round of a legal dispute with mining magnate Andrew Forrest. The court has rejected an appeal by Forrest’s private company against the Supreme Court’s ruling that a licence associated with Onslow’s sand mining operations should be renewed. Onslow mines sand from the Ashburton River, which runs through Forrest’s Minderoo cattle station. A spokesman for Forrest says the businessman will consider appealing the decision.
