"Australian mining company Walkabout Resources has said it has made "very exciting" discoveries while searching for gold and other precious metals in Slieve Gallion" - Belfast Telegraph
On the surface this might sound great but mining our mountains means the end of our historically beautiful Mountain that overlooks the whole of Mid Ulster. It will rip apart our land. Could contaminate our rivers, kill our wildlife and very few pennies will ever be found for the locals. These multi million pound companies will swallow up the resources and leave the local community with very little.
If we get enough suport we can stop this before it gets started!
