The McPhillamys Gold Project is a proposed 15-year mining project that would leave a devastating 400-year legacy on the environment and precious local waterways.
Regis Resources want to build a giant open-cut gold mine near Blayney, in central-western New South Wales, that could poison waterways and the Belubula River.
We can live without gold, but there is no resource more precious than water.
That’s why we’re representing the Belubula Headwaters Protection Group before the NSW Independent Planning Commission (IPC) today and bringing expert scientific evidence that supports our client’s case that the mine should be refused over its significant and unacceptable impact on water.
The McPhillamys mine and its giant toxic tailings dam risks spilling toxic chemicals into the Belubula River that feeds local farms, drawing down water levels and contaminating land and waterways with wastewater.
That’s why our client, a group of concerned farmers and community members, is standing up to oppose the mine.
McPhillamys is just one of the many water-guzzling, river-polluting mining projects putting our water, communities and ecosystems at risk.
Please chip in to help power the legal battle to protect our precious water against mining giants.
