The Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment intends to grant a prospecting licence for Base Metals, Gold (ores of) and Silver (ores of) to MOAG Copper Gold Resources Inc, 1 Burkebrook Place, Suite 405, Toronto, Ontario M4G 0A2, Canada over the following Townlands in County Galway:
Townlands in Ballinahinch Barony: Boolagare, Callow, Dolan, Doohulla, Emlaghmore, Errisbeg West, Murvey, Tullaghlumman Beg.

PL Area 930

I register my objection on the grounds of threats to the health and wellbeing of the natural environment and that of the local community. Mining is a process that is hugely destructive to land, water and air and to all who require these for their continued healthy existence.
In this era of Climate Emergency and rapid species loss the granting of licenses to prospect is very much a step in the wrong direction. It is at odds with the responsibilities of this government at this crucial time for the planet and all that live in it.

Deadline for objections 6th July
