Motion: Goldmine and Processing Plant (LA10/2017/1249/F)

Council - 5th February 2019

To consider the following motion to which due notice has been given:

 “This Council opposes plans to develop a goldmine and processing plant (LA10/2017/1249/F) in the Sperrins and wider region. Given the serious health and environmental risks involved, this Council is opposed to the use of cyanide for mining purposes, which also contravenes the European Parliament resolution of 27 April 2017 on the implementation of the Mining Waste Directive (2006/21/EC)”.

Proposed by: Councillor McColgan, seconded by Councillor J Feely.
