Mining the truth in Northland - by Catherine Delahunty
It takes a lot of effort to mine for the truth among all the rhetoric and spin coming from the industry and our National-led Government. Currently, the Far North District Mayor is heading to a large miner’s conference in Canada to sell the minerals of Te Tai Tokerau/Northland to foreign miners. The trip has to […] read moreFebruary 23, 2012 9:57 am - 40 Comments
Coromandel – No More Mining, Stop the Vandals - by Catherine Delahunty
Last Sunday we went for a walk in the park. Some people went all the way to the Glass Earth/Newmont drilling rig high in the forest park and occupied it for a while. The rest of us with our babies and banners walked for an hour and a half up the beautiful Parikiwai Valley near […] read moreMay 30, 2011 7:56 pm - 2 Comments

It is also close to the newest gold mining permit issued for the Coromandel area. […] read moreFebruary 23, 2010 2:44 pm - 12 Comments
Gold mining – it’s the pits - by Catherine Delahunty
Last Monday Jeanette and I were invited to a forum on mining in Waihi. Part of the event was a tour of the open cast pit (formerly Martha Hill) and the Favona underground mine, and the tailing dam (formerly the Golden Valley). Even though I was an objector at the first hearings to oppose that […] read moreAugust 10, 2009 11:45 am - 8 Comments
