Banaba (Ocean Island) Story of Phosphate Mining

Banaba has been left devastated by 80 years of phosphate mining by the British Phosphate Commission. The BPC was a joint government consortium of the British, Australian and New Zealand governments. Over an 80 year period from 1900 to 1979, 21 million tons of phosphate was removed from the Banaban homeland. Over 13 millions tons was scattered across the wheatfields and sheep farms of Australia.
