LETTER TO THE EDITOR

‘Please make contact with us’

Several April issues of the Braidwood Times gave notice of Ochre Resources Pty Ltd’s application for an exploration licence for metallic minerals.

The area is described as 10 kilometres north-east of Braidwood town in the direction of Nerriga Road.

Further details available from David von Perger on (02) 9119 8111. 

All attempts by local residents to obtain further information from that number have been unsuccessful.

In light of previous experience with mining development in the Braidwood region, it is vital that the public have access to further information from the company.

Could Ochre Resources Pty Ltd please make contact with us?

Mr von Perger’s phone has remained unanswered after many attempts.
