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

The drilling rig is working in forestry land upstream of the beautiful Opoutere estuary and dotterel recovery programme area. It is interesting that Newmont has funded a salary [...] read moreNovember 1, 2010 3:52 pm - No Comments

The hall is close to a major historical and recreational area including many artefacts and remnants from the early gold mining days. 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
