Derelict Mine Investigation, Major's Creek, NSW, Sampling & analysis stream waters & sediments - 1999

There is a community perception that mining at Major's Creek may have led to contamination of streams by heavy metals which pose a threat to riverine ecosystems.

The survey described in this report aims to identify chronic metal contamination of stream water and sediments by eroding tailings deposits or other mine waste or workings.

Sampling did not include old Battery sites which could reasonably be the subject of a separate survey. This report discusses and presents results of previous sampling and analysis of water and sediments from Spring & Major's Creek and further sampling in May 1999.
