Eurobodalla Shire Council has launched legal action to contest NSW planning and environmental approval for a $240million underground gold mine at Majors Creek, near Braidwood.

Araluen residents, including best-selling Diary of a Wombat author Jackie French, are also challenging federal environmental approval for the mine, demanding Environment Minister Tony Burke provide a detailed scientific explanation of why the approval was granted.

Cortona Resources believes it can defend legal action taken against the recent granting of environmental approval for its gold mine in New South Wales.

The company said on Monday that objections had been lodged in the NSW Land and Environment Court against the NSW Planning Minister's environmental approvals for the Dargues Reef mine, at Majors Creek, east of Canberra.

The Eurobodalla Shire Council and the NSW Environmental Defender's Office are behind the appeals.

The environmental approvals were granted last month.

The planned mine at Majors Creek is expected to produce 50,000 ounces of gold a year.

Legal action has begun against a proposed gold mine near the New South Wales town of Braidwood.

Western Australian company Cortona Resources is planning the six year mine at Majors Creek, 60 kilometres south-east of Canberra.

The mine was approved last month by the New South Wales Government and was also ticked off under the Commonwealth's Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.
