This fact would just about be enough to have the area as an historic site, as the Manhattan Project was the scientific event that most greatly changed the world. The Mount Painter - Mount Gee is an unique mineralogical province which deserves to be protected. Protection of unique geological/mineralogical sites is a growing movement. Even China is considering World Heritage protection for the 3 Rivers area in the south (perhaps to make up for the 3 Gorges Dam fiasco), so perhaps it is a chance for Australia to take the lead.
