The Braidwood Campdraft Club held its first Campdraft since 2006 at the Braidwood Showgrounds on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th January 2010. It had been four years since a Campdraft could be held in Braidwood due to the ongoing drought conditions and the lack of water at the Show Grounds.

09 Jan, 2010 10:34 AM

Resources company Cortona is about to begin ''aggressive drilling campaigns'' at its proposed Majors Creek gold mine after raising $10.3million in capital. The money will go towards a broader feasibility study and the planning process for the 280ha Dargues Reef mine site, near Braidwood. The study will take about 10 months and, if it and environmental approvals are successful, the company plans to build a $30 million underground mine that would begin gold production next year.Two drilling rigs are scheduled to arrive on site on Monday.

Approach from Canberra Times re 10.3 million announcement

Hi all.

I was, this afternoon, approached by David McLennan from the Canberra Times asking for our response to Cortona's press release of Friday 8th January 10.
I outlined all the sorts of issues that are being discussed in the village but refrained from suggesting we, as a committee, had an opinion about it. I stated there is a wide diversity of opinion and that our work is to try to amalgamate all those concerns to achieve best outcomes for the village.
I referred the reporter to the website and to the survey for a list of the sorts of things being discussed by the villagers.


Cortona Resources would like to inform you of todayÔÇÖs ASX Announcement.


  • Settlement of $3.6M shortfall completes $10.3M Capital Raising

    Views on Concerns & Benefits to Community Survey Launched

    Views on Concerns & Benefits to Community Survey

    This survey will help the committee to prepare a list of issues which the community would like Cortona and all relevant government authorities to consider as part of the approval processes and feasibility studies which are now occurring.

    The outcome sought is a legally binding document with Cortona that addresses the issues raised by the community.

    Our community spirit - Alive and thriving

    I just want to extend my thanks to those who organised the Christmas party and the New Years day picnic.

    Firstly - The Christmas party: With the opening of the tennis courts, the event was extra special this year!
    Santa had his work cut-out delivering over 70 gifts. A HUGE indication of the swelling community, and the increased involvement by all who live here.
    For those who didn't attend or weren't able to, it is a lovely community activity, even if you don't have children.
    For those who did, Thankyou for all the yummy side dishes and deserts.
