Glenugie on January 11. The protest continues.

The site on January 11, 2013
The above two photos show the range of equipment required for an exploration drill. How much more required for full operation and linking to other wells? Industrialisation of our agricultural land.

The drill site at night. The circled figure indicates the size of the rig. Lights could be seen from one kilometre away. Noise (described as extremely loud 'screeching' noise) continued until 4 am. Appeared to be intermittent  problems with the drilling. Drilling stopped earlier today  (January 12) hard rock? Need to move rig? Problems ? Good?

A small group of protesters ( January 10) maintains a vigil and succeed in further delaying procedures at the Metgasco' site.

This photo shows a gas field. Consider that a two kilometre radius around each well may be effectively fracked. This gas field has only 120 CSG wells. There are plans for over 2000 wells in the Clarence Valley PEL 426 (Petroleum Exploration Licence). An industrial wasteland in the Clarence Valley?? No!! No Coal Seam Gas, Save Our Land, Save Our Water.

The end of the fossil fuel age? It has to be.
