What type of mining is happening?
Whilst the geology of the region does not support Coal Seam Gas or Coal mining, the Mid North Coast region is being explored and mined for its vast mineral wealth, especially Gold and Antimony which are fetching record amounts on world markets and are both in high demand for export.
Unfortunately most of these mineral deposits are in extremely sensitive and high rainfall environments that border on the river catchments of the Nambucca, Macleay and Coffs Harbour regions. These mining projects will produce vast amounts of toxic substances such as Arsenic and Antimony which pose a great risk to both the environment and water supply for these regions.
