Mintabie Town To Close - End Of An EraAre you a big fan of the precious gemstone Opal? If yes, you’ve probably heard of Mintabie Opal Town — a destination that boasts some of Australia’s finest Opals. Well, according to news reaching us, the South Australian Government have decided to close down the town and its residents forced to evacuate the area within one year. Why? Well, after a State Government review, it was discovered that a lot of people were living there illegally. What’s more, a government report also pointed out that the town was an access point for drugs and alcohol into the Aboriginal APY Lands.

A Brief History Of Mintabie

The town is 1000 km north west of Adelaide and 35 km west of Marla in South Australia. Mintabie is located in an area that can be likened to a beautiful desert. It’s good to know that the Aboriginal people of the town were the first to explore the lands and mine the gemstone Opal. It was reported that during the First World War, the people sold dark based Mintabie Opal at Coober Pedy. European opal miners who tried to mine at the site discovered that it was incredibly hard to extract the gemstones with just picks and shovels. Moving forward, around 1976, miners used bulldozers and front-end loaders to open cut the sandstone — this made it possible for them to manoeuvre the extremely hard sandstone and access its beautiful Opals.

So What’s Happening in 2018 in Mintabie?

Today’s visitors will find that Mintabie is a very small town that’s home to about 60 people. While it is in quite a rundown condition, the town has a hotel, a school, two stores, an airport and a health clinic. As for the closure of town, it’s important to note that the underlying issues are not apparent to the first time visitor. It was investigations and reviews that the government found that Mintabie has been a hot-spot for the illicit supply of drugs and alcohol to the locals. News from ABC revealed that a local store owner was accused of withdrawing up to $1 million from the bank accounts of local residents. 

Even worse, in December 2017, there were also “reports of an arson attack which destroyed a house, a woman being imprisoned in her house and sexually assaulted, verbal threats towards store owners, three cars being set alight, a deliberately lit grass fire near the school, a break-and-enter at the school, numerous residential property break-ins, ‘hooning’ and drug dealing”. It was also discovered that none of these events were reported to the authorities or police thus causing the State Government to terminate all residential and commercial leases in the town.

The End Of Mintabie Opal Production

Along with the closure of the town, there will be a full exclusion zone around the area. This means that mining and fossking will not be allowed. The unfortunate events that have surrounded the town will result in the loss of more Mintabie Opal discoveries.  Mintabie Town To Close - End Of An Era

All in all, the beautiful town of Mintabie will soon be closed down due to the behaviour of some unscrupulous individuals. At this point, we just have to come to terms with what is about to happen and of course, hope that the government creates an avenue where visitors and tourists can still bask in the natural beauty of Mintabie.

Ako da, vjerojatno ste čuli za Mintabie Opal Town - odredište koje ima neke od najboljih australskih Opala. Pa, prema vijestima koji nas dostižu, vlada Južne Australije odlučila je zatvoriti grad i njegove stanovnike koji su prisiljeni evakuirati prostor unutar jedne godine. Zašto? Nakon pregleda državne vlade, otkriveno je da je mnogo ljudi tamo živjelo ilegalno. Štoviše, vladino izvješće također je istaknulo kako je grad bio pristupna točka za droge i alkohol u aboridžanskim APY zemljama.

Kratka povijest Mintabie

Grad je 1000 km sjeverozapadno od Adelaide i 35 km zapadno od Marle u Južnoj Australiji. Mintabie se nalazi u području koje se može usporediti s prekrasnom pustinjom. Dobro je znati da su Aboridžani iz grada bili prvi koji su istraživali zemlju i mina Opalu. Izvijestio je da su tijekom Prvog svjetskog rata ljudi prodavali tamnu Mintabie Opalu u Cooberu Pedyju. Europski opalni rudari koji su pokušali ruditi na mjestu otkrili su da je nevjerojatno teško izvaditi gemstones samo s pijucima i lopatama. Premještanje prema naprijed, oko 1976., rudari su koristili buldožere i utovarivače kako bi otvorili rezan pješčenjaka - što im je omogućilo manevriranje izuzetno čvrstog pješčenjaka i pristup njezinim prekrasnim opalama.

Što se događa 2018. godine u Mintabieu?

Današnji posjetitelji će otkriti da je Mintabie mali gradić koji ima oko 60 stanovnika. Iako je u prilično rundown uvjet, grad ima hotel, škola, dvije trgovine, zračne luke i zdravstvene klinike. Što se tiče zatvaranja grada, važno je napomenuti da temeljni problemi nisu očigledni po prvi put posjetitelju. Bilo je to istraga i preispitivanje da je vlada utvrdila da je Mintabie mjesto za zabranu opskrbe droga i alkohola lokalnim stanovnicima. Vijesti iz ABC-a pokazale su da je vlasnik lokalnog dućana optužen za povlačenje do milijun dolara s bankovnih računa lokalnih stanovnika.

Još gore, u prosincu 2017. godine, bilo je i izvještaja o paleževnom napadu koji je uništio kuću, ženu koja je bila zatočena u svojoj kući i seksualno napadnuta, verbalne prijetnje prema vlasnicima prodavaonica, tri automobila postavljena na vatru, namjerno osvijetljena trava u blizini škola, stanka u školi, brojne stanke za stanovanje, "hooning" i drogiranje ". Također je otkriveno da niti jedan od tih događaja nije prijavljen tijelima vlasti ili policiji, pa je državna vlada dovela do ukidanja svih stambenih i poslovnih najmova u gradu.

Kraj modalitete oplemenjivanja Mintabie

Uz zatvaranje grada, bit će potpuno isključena zona oko tog područja. To znači da rudarstvo i fosskiranje neće biti dopušteni. Nesretni događaji koji su okružili grad će rezultirati gubitkom više Ottawa Opala otkrića. Mintabie Mjesto za zatvaranje - kraj jedne ere

Sve u svemu, prekrasan grad Mintabie uskoro će biti zatvoren zbog ponašanja nekih beskrupuloznih pojedinaca. U ovom trenutku moramo se uvjeriti u ono što će se dogoditi i naravno, nadamo se da vlada stvara put gdje posjetitelji i turisti još uvijek mogu uživati ​​u prirodnim ljepotama Mintabie.
