12/12 - Author's rally cry against mine

Author Jackie French has gone public with a desperate plea for information to save endangered species from the proposed Dargues Reef gold mine.

French, author of the children's book Diary of a Wombat, is putting together a submission to the Federal Environment Department on the impact of the planned mine.

She said she had just nine days to compile the submission and was frantically trying to track down academics or conservationists who had conducted research on rare and endangered creatures living in the Majors Creek gorge, near the proposed mine site.

Weed Removal Program

"Over the next few weeks (depending on the whether), Cortona will be implementing a weed removal program on their property near Majors Creek Road.

This is part of a sustained effort to remove blackberry and broom, so please donÔÇÖt be alarmed if you see people spraying on the property. The work is being carried out by professional contractors.

Cortona have a strategy in place to regenerate the land and hope it is as successful as our previous weed removal programs."

The Bridge

So what's the story with the bridge? I heard it is going to be closed for repairs next year. When is this supposed to happen and for how long? Can anyone one enlighten us?
Cheers, Wombatbill
