04/12 - SAVE ARALUEN VALLEY AND MAJORS CREEK - SAY NO TO CYANIDE

TO: NSW DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING MINISTER: PRU GOWARD

[Save Araluen Valley and Majors Creek - Say NO to Cyanide]

 
Dear Minister Goward, Please don't approve the modifications, proposed for Dargues Gold Mine in Majors Creek, NSW. Unity Mining wishes to remove conditions from their original consent, that would allow it to use cyanide and mercury onsite to process ores, and to potentially pave the way to processing ores from other mines across the region.

Why is this important?

Dargues Gold Mine is located in a highly sensitive, biodiverse and critical part of south eastern New South Wales. Water from Majors Creek flows into the Deua River and estuaries, through National Park, Araluen Valley, and down to the ocean. People's livelihoods in this region are dependent upon the health of their soil, air and water for farming, aquaculture, environmental conservation and importantly - for the health of their children.
