The Mines (Aluminium Agreement) Act 1961 is an agreement between the Victorian government and Alcoa of Australia to allow the establishment and operation of the Anglesea mine on the botanically rich Anglesea Heath and the establishment of the Anglesea power station which supplies part of the electricity demand of the company's nearby Point Henry aluminium smelter.
The schedule attached to the agreement, which was dated November 22 1961, specifies in section 6 that it would "remain in force for the period of fifty years from the date of commencement". In section 7 the schedule states that "subject to compliance by the Company with the terms and conditions of this Agreement the Company shall upon written application made by it to the Minister not later than six months prior to the expiration of the period specified in the last preceding clause be entitled to an extension of that period for such period not exceeding fifty years as is specified in its application."
