Araluen Water Quality Sampling Report -2000

The rural community of Araluen, located 56 km northwest of Moruya, is almost totally
dependent on groundwater for their domestic, stock and agricultural needs. The Araluen
Valley groundwater resource, is deemed of highest beneficial use, as it provides drinking
water, water for large scale crop irrigation, plus stock and domestic supplies.

This aquifer system is also ranked as the third most ÔÇ£at riskÔÇØ aquifer in the Sydney South Coast Region, based on both the quantity and quality pressures on the groundwater resource.

Derelict Mine Investigation, Major's Creek, NSW, Sampling & analysis stream waters & sediments - 1999

There is a community perception that mining at Major's Creek may have led to contamination of streams by heavy metals which pose a threat to riverine ecosystems.

The survey described in this report aims to identify chronic metal contamination of stream water and sediments by eroding tailings deposits or other mine waste or workings.


After attending the excellent EDO workshop this afternoon ( congratulations Committee!)I asked one of the presenters about objecting to the mine by debating the ethics of it being necessary and therefore in the "public interest".A search of gold on Wikipedia shows global production exceeding demand, the historical link between using gold reserves as a hedge against extremes of global currency variations (generally man-made I should add)becoming increasingly irrelevant, and the fact that it is estimated that all the gold ever mined is still in circulation makes one question what public inter


o High grade results from shallow RC drilling and deep diamond drilling, including:

┬À 19m @ 9.13g/t gold and 8.34g/t silver

o Deepest intercept to date shows substantial thickening of mineralised lode.

o Further visible gold observed, results pending

o Exploration drilling continues
