Maps of Liverpool Plains
Leases on our Land
The extent of mining exploration leases on the Northwest Slopes and Plains is unprecedented in the history of NSW. It would seem the government, addicted to royalties, can not hand them out fast enough.
Many people think that their home, their farm, their small holding, their little piece of heaven will not be affected.
We are sorry to inform you that you’re dreamin’.
Maybe a little money for the few that get bought out, as the mining companies seek to divide and conquer a community, but much misery and cost for those who remain – the majority – judging by all the experiences we have documented from other mine-affected communities to date.
But don’t take our word for it. Have a look at the maps of the coal and petroleum (gas) leases and see if you can spot an area that is unloved by these people! From Narrabri to Woolbrook, Murrurundi to the Warrumbungles we are now ‘leased’.
We say no more of this ‘development’ without the proper procedures being followed.
