KINGSTON SE Crown Hotel
Friday 17th June at 2pm – 3pm
Come and meet Phil Laird and Annie Kia from Lock The Gate Alliance who will share how communities are winning, and what you can do to protect your ‘Mining Free Brand’ and protect your livelihood, land and families.
Phil Laird is National Campaign Coordinator of Lock The Gate. A farmer, he understands the harm that contamination can do to rural enterprises. Phil will speak on insurance risks to landholders from unconventional gasfields.
This will be Annie’s fourth visit to our region. As Lock The Gate Community Engagement Coordinator, she helps communities develop their own Mining and Gasfield Free strategies.
LCPA are aware that Sherlock Minerals plans to explore for lead, silver, zinc and other minerals over large mining leases close to Kingston SE. This is of great concern to many local landowners and the community at large. As reported by LCPA in April last year, Strike Energy handed back its licence for the Kingston Lignite Project. A lot of work by locals made this possible.
