TURN THE SOUND RIGHT UP... In January 2009 - before the election Barry O'Farrell made a speech saying "The next Liberal/National Party will ensure that mining cannot occur in any water catchment area... NO IFS NO BUTS A GUARANTEE!!! This was his promise to all Australians before he was elected as NSW Premier..... Fast forward to September 2012 when the NSW state Government released its Strategic Regional land use Policy.... NOT A SINGLE PART OF NSW IS DECLARED OFF LIMITS TO CSG MINING... including our Water Catchments ....instead 22 leases are renewed, including some that cover drinking water catchments and fracking is given the green light with immediate effect.... We all protested today to say enough is enough.... We are all sick of Politicians lying to us!!! When we are young we are taught by our parents that to lie is a bad thing, When we go to school, our teachers reinforce that rule... and when we are adults, if we lie, we are taught, that its fraud, and if we do it we could go to jail !!! So why is it, that Politicians can get away with tell bold faced lies in public?? The promises they make to us should be like a verbal contract... they break the contract with the Australian public, then they should be held accountable.. they SHOULD have to honour those promises made before an election, and if they don't they should be fired!!! Many people are under the impression that Australia is the land of the free -- I instead say, Australia is now the land of GREED. We are no longer free when mining companies, assisted by our own Government are able to drill, and mine where ever they want. We are no longer free when our water can be contaminated by a cocktail of mining chemicals, all for monetary gain... We are no longer free if we aren't allowed to say NO... We the people Demand Barry O'Farrell KEEP his pre-election Promise and cancel all licences near, and within our catchment areas NOW !!

A community used to fighting drought, is in its biggest battle yet. This time with Big Mining Companies and the NSW government to protect its most vital resource - water. Over 500 landholders, farmers, families and long-time residents from across Coonamble Shire in northwest NSW, came together this past Saturday in the town of Coonamble, to raise awareness of the major environmental effects coal seam gas (CSG) exploration, taking place in the region by mining giant Santos, can have on the community. CSG is a dangerous mining tactic that could pollute, deplete and contaminate the Great Artesian Basin, the only reliable source of fresh water throughout much of inland Australia that supplies residents, many of whom run working farms, with clean drinking water. The organizing committee went door-to-door to survey landholders and residents across over one million hectares and found an overwhelming consensus. Over 96% of those surveyed voted against coal seam gas mines due to the the damaging effects it could have to the area's water table. Mining companies worldwide have always claimed minimal potential damage to water supplies and natural aquifers. However, recently it was revealed that water leakage from a Santos water storage pond contaminated an aquifer in nearby Pilliga with uranium, at 20x over the recommended safe drinking water level. Also, recently Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner signed a "memorandum of understanding" with the company to accelerate the Pilliga project, guaranteeing a decision on its future by January 23 2015, next year. This has become a major issues and over 200 communities across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland have declared themselves, "gas field free."The time for these local residents to garner support and stop the massive lobbying machine companies like Santos and others have over the local community needs is now.

Coal Seam Greed was going to be a short satire showing Katso and Nowhereman posing as a mining company called Reed Gas and erecting notices stating their intent to explore for unconventional gas or CSG in inner-city Brisbane. The idea was that residents would see the signs, phone and leave messages in response, which would then be incorporated into the video. As luck would have it, one of the parks they put signs in had previously been fenced off for genuine earthworks. A few notices later, and Katso and Nowhereman had their very first coal seam gas exploration in Brisbane. Angry residents did call and leave messages... so did a confused council, a very stressed mining minister's office, the company they said they were a subsidiary of and a curious Chanel 9 news... The entire project was captured on video and for no more than $50, it was an extremely effective action. Follow the link to watch on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ecu5SCYyWGU

As a new technology in engineering field, underground directional drilling technology of coal mine has been widely used in borehole drilling in gas drainage, water hazard control, geological exploration and accurate drilling fields. ZDY6000LD(A) directional drilling rig, mud pulse transmission MWD system, assorted drilling tools and combined directional drilling technique are developed to solve current technical limitation of direction drilling. The whole set of equipment appears significant advantages. These advantages include enlarged power, high borehole accident handing capacity and high wireless MWD accuracy. Meanwhile, less drilling cutting and small borehole curvature are expected to generate by combined directional drilling technique.

October 16 2011 - Stop CSG action - Walk for Water - Sea Cliff Bridge, northern Illawarra. "15 coal seam gas (CSG) wells have been approved for development in the northern Illawarra. Further wells are being discussed and applied for in the region. These wells are in and around the Sydney Water Catchment, and pose a direct threat to our water supply. We are worried because CSG mining always involves contaminated water as extraction of gas draws water out of the coal seam that is highly saline and can contain toxic and radioactive compounds, endocrine disruptors and heavy metals; When using hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), contaminates large quantities of fresh water with sand and chemicals that are pumped underground; Lowers the fresh water table; Is a fire hazard, as wells, processing plants and pipelines leak; Risks a range of direct and indirect health impacts such heart, lung, kidney and neurological problems and cancer; Has a global warming impact that is as bad if not worse than coal, over a twenty year period." -- From the Stop CSG Illawarra website.

This video also shows major cracking to Waratah Riverlet both damaged by longwall coal mining. Despite this appalling damage, longwall mines continue to expand with a number of new longwall mining panels underway and new underground coal mines proposed for the Sydney drinking water catchments. Extraordinary as it seems, and despite promises to the contrary, Sydney's drinking water catchment which is vital to the health and wellbeing of 4.3 million people is not safe from coal mining and its impacts.

Do you live in Sydney & drink water? Concerned residents are standing up against the NSW State Governments plans to approve over 150 Coal Seam Gas (CSG) wells to be drilled within the drinking water catchments! The Primary Industries Minister Katrina Hodgkinson has overhauled Sydney Catchment Authority board and she has not appointed anyone with medical qualifications. It is the first time since 1998 that the board has not included a public health expert. Even more concerning, a person with umpteen mining directorships, Mark Bethwaite, is appointed to head up the Sydney Catchment Authority. On 12 July 2013 we had a huge win for the campaign to stop CSG and protect our water! The Planning Assessment Commission refused Apex Energy's application to drill 16 CSG wells in and around the drinking water catchment for greater Sydney. 2013 is an election year in Australia - if you act now, you can make a huge difference in ensuring Coal Seam Gas mining is stopped within all of our water catchments. Write or speak to your local MP about your concerns on this issue. And join your local Stop CSG group to see how else you can get involved! http://stopcsg.org/ourwater/ Thank you to our tour organiser Josie Evans & all the passionate residents of the Stop Coal Seam Gas Sydney & Sydney Water Catchment groups for making this tour possible. And for the amazing efforts of the Stop CSG Illawarra, thank you for empowering & supporting our communities to stand up & make a difference! Written/directed/edited by Ellena Fliker.

Full video of the coal seam gas 'People's Petition' debate in the NSW Parliament on March 15 2012. 20,000+ members of the community signed the petition for a moratorium on all CSG mining until the outcome of a Royal Commission, and a complete ban on fracking. The resulting dysfunctional "debate" you can witness in full here is indicative of the contempt that our politicians now hold for genuine public concern... for YOUR opinion.
