Stop Macedon Ranges Mining Exploration Licence
This petition made change with 5,255 supporters!
A Perth-based company has applied for a mining exploration licence near Romsey and Lancefield, in the beautiful Macedon Ranges just outside of Melbourne. I know how beautiful it is because I’m lucky enough to live in that part of the world.
That’s why I’m trying to stop this mine before it begins, by calling on the government to deny this mining exploration licence.
I joke around all the time, some people may say I do it for a living. But I’m deadly serious about this proposed mine. I've seen what happened to the Hunter Valley from mining and I don't want it to happen here.
There are over 60,000 abandoned mine sites in Australia and only 21 have been rehabilitated, part of the ongoing phenomenon of mine abandonment in Australia. So I find mining companies very hard to trust, and have no reason to trust this one.
If you live around the Macedon Ranges and don't want to raise your family near a massive hole in the ground, you can object to this mining exploration licence application here, by quoting number EL006849 here
For everyone else, please sign this petition and share it far and wide to show your support for the Macedon Ranges community who do not want this mine.
You helped me get Denyer the Gold Logie, now help me stop this licence.
The best way to stop a mine is to make sure it never starts.
