Victoria the promised (mining) land

Sunday, April 17, 2016

Mining in Australia is a rogue industry that feels it can ride roughshod over the people of regional Australia. The Australian mining industry has sold out their own nation, they have picked clean the easy to get mineral deposits, they have destroyed communities and environment and have pilfered away and sent offshore the wealth of all Australians.

Gas fracking and Gina Rinehart comes to Gippsland!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

One of Gina Rinehart's companies has invested more than $4 million in the gas exploration firm Lakes Oil. It's a subsidiary of Rinehart's WA iron ore giant Hancock Prospecting.

We suspect the 'democratic system' and govt processes we currently have here will be corrupted even more with her gazillions of political influence.

Part of this latest move is the appointment of climate change sceptic, Professor Ian Plimer, as a director of Lakes Oil.

Is it just coincidence that as new mining projects are approved in Longford and Seaspray and the moratorium on fracking is about to be lifted, Gina buys big stakes in the local mining companies, our local politicians open the newly upgraded West Sale Airport, the highways in and out of Longford to Melbourne are upgraded and Seaspray gets a new 'compound like' accommodation site they're calling a holiday park?
Watch out Gippsland!!!

A copper zinc gold mine in the Victorian Alps?

Thursday, September 20, 2012

The Stockman Project is located in the Victorian Alps, 470km by road north-east of Melbourne and 60km by road north east of Omeo. The project contains two copper-zinc-lead-silver-gold rich deposits, called Wilga and Currawong. Wilga was discovered in 1978 and Currawong in 1979. Denehurst mined the copper rich core of Wilga deposit from 1992 to 1996. In 2006, following rehabilitation of the plant site and tailings dam by the Victorian Department of Primary Industries, the project was put out for public tender as part of an exploration incentive program.
