A dangerous mine in the headwaters of a major river. Please oppose this proposal.

Mining company CopperChem wants to re-open the copper zinc mine in the headwaters of the Tambo River in East Gippsland. As part of this proposal they intend to greatly expand the existing tailings dam. The company is currently seeking permission from the state government for the project to proceed. We have until April 4 to object.

Please send a submission to the Victorian government opposing the project. It will take you just a couple of minutes and will have a real impact.
