We were inches from Tyre spikes put out by a WA mining Company, near a closed mine..Can’t believe anyone would do this ..These spike clusters are 6 inches long and would destroy your tyres leaving you stranded in the Bush..We were quite entitled to be there..Not happy ..What should I do about it..

Dob them in to the mines department in WA... Or move them so they will get spiked by their own spikes... tongue

if you had rights to be there, then you should report it to the Mines Dept & to the cops. potential malicious damage & endangerment.

A bit tricky - how can you show (or know) that the mining company did it? Just because it is near their closed mine? Not greenies or a station owner or a detectorologists discouraging others or simply someone with a sick mind? It happens here but it is usually greenies. I assume the company still holds the lease (otherwise what advantage would it be to go to the trouble, and risk prosecution if it could be proven)?

It doesn't matter if you had a right to be there or not, mineral rights don't trump public safety.
I'd report it.

Oh it does!! If you shouldn't be there, or be expected to be there, the legal holder can do what he wants!!

No, threat to public safety and trespass are two independent offences. They could be prosecuted unless there was a warning sign about spikes on the road. It is totally irresponsible. However I still don't know why you assume it was the mining company - there is no logical reason that I can see for them doing so, especially if they no longer hold the lease, and plenty of other possible contenders.

This happened a few years ago out from Leinster the perpetrator was charged, convicted and fined.
Definitely report to authorities.


Happy Hunting, Nightjar.
