It's time to name and shame investors placing Clarence River catchment water at risk

Metgasco Limited is actively exploring for coal seam gas in the Clarence Valley with a view to eventual production if successful and Anchor Resources Limited has identified both gold and antimony potential in the upper reaches of the Clarence River catchment on behalf the Chinese multinational mining corporation which owns it.
Commercial mining activity by these companies will have the potential to contaminate ground and/or surface water systems which supply fresh water to an estimated 150,000 people living in the Dorrigo Plateau, Coffs Harbour and Clarence Valley regions of New South Wales, as well as place sustainable water for agriculture and livestock at risk.
