Public Meeting for Hills Gold Mine Project Tonight

BiH old 700x505 2

A public meeting is being held in the Adelaide Hills tonight (Monday 19 August) to discuss the Gold Mine project in Woodside.

A mining lease application (MLA) is currently with State Government, who are undertaking a public consultation period in regards to Terramin's proposal to get the abandoned site back up and running.

The plan to revive the historic mine has divided the local community with the Inverbrackie Creek Catchment Group and some winemakers concerned the plan will threaten the region’s tourism and agriculture industries.

The public meeting will be attended by Minister for Energy and Mining Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP as well as representatives from the Department for Energy and Mining and the applicant, Terramin, making it a vital opportunity for businesses, residents and the wider community to ask questions and raise concerns.

WHAT: Community meeting
WHEN: Monday 19 August 7PM
WHERE: Woodside Institute, 30 Onkaparinga Valley Rd, Woodside
