    Historic mining village Majors Creek near Braidwood is a step closer to joining Australia's third gold boom, with Cortona Resources proposing a $30 million underground mine.

    Feasibility studies have indicated a pre-tax profit of $68million from an initial mine at Dargues Reef near the town. As the studies continue to determine final economics before planning approvals are sought, Majors Creek residents and the surrounding Palerang Shire are split on the issue.
