Western Australian Mines Minister Bill Johnston says the WA government will not allow mine waste from overseas to be imported into the state. Lynas currently processes rare earth from its Mount Weld mine in WA at a plant in Malaysia, but some local critics of the plant have called for the waste that it produces, which is slightly radioactive, to be shipped back to Australia. Lynas is currently the subject of a $1.5 billion takeover bid from Wesfarmers, which Lynas has rejected.
