ASX/Media Release – 9 February 2012

02/02 - Majors Creek goldmine agreement

Proponents of a huge underground gold mine east of Canberra say they've made a major breakthrough by securing agreements with two environmental groups, but cannot give a starting date for building the mine.

Cortona Resources says the Majors Creek mine will create 100 jobs during construction and 80 ongoing jobs during production of an estimated 50,000 ounces of gold a year.

The Land and Environment Court is expected to give consent on Tuesday following the agreement between Cortona and The Coastwatchers Association and South East Region Conservation Alliance.

01/02 - Brian’s major effort

COMMUNITY service has always come easily to Brian McDonald. The notion
of giving simply “rubbed off” from the older generation growing up in
Majors Creek, south of Braidwood. The 73-year-old’s long list of credits
has earned him an Order of Australia Medal in the General Division.

“I’m chuffed,” Mr McDonald told Town and Country Magazine.

“Its unexpected, although 18 months ago one of my friends started asking a
lot of questions about what I’d done
and I smelt a rat.”
