Author Jackie French said it was the third time the creek, which runs through her property, had been polluted.

We have recovered from the challenging conditions resulting from the significant rainfall that occurred throughout NSW at the end of February.
The ROM pad earthworks have now reached their final level and the box cut excavation is starting to take shape with approximately 65,000 cubic metres of earth moved.
Final preparations are being made for the formal engagement of the construction contractor, having finalised the planning for relocation of Bendigo plant and infrastructure to Dargues.

Turbulence in world gold prices is unlikely to have any major impact on the Dargues Gold Mine project in the historic village of Majors Creek, developers say.

Located near Braidwood, to the south-east of Canberra, the mine's development has already involved the moving of more than 88,000 cubic metres of earth.
