One-on-one with natural resources minister: Mining for cash

  • Published on Dec 7, 2019
  • In July 2019, a nondescript article from an online portal touched on a big issue - that the government was looking to exploit Malaysia’s treasure trove of mineral reserves.
    The value ascribed to those reserves though was an eye-popping RM732bil.
    That is apparently, what Malaysia has sitting inside its grounds and the man spearheading the ambitious plan is Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Dr A. Xavier Jayakumar as he speaks to The Star.

    Talk nonsense, when mining, all types of rocks are exposed including radioactive ones, that is also to say radioactive rocks will be on the surface hence it is harmful. And what about rocks which carries precious metal elements? Mine rare earth minerals but throw away those precious rocks? Stop lying lah....
