Quid non mortalia pectora cogis, auri sacra fames. (The execrable lust for gold did indeed lead men’s souls astray. Virgil).

A public, (attendance required prior registration), information meeting on the mineral prospecting licensing process took place yesterday Mon 19th November from 7pm. Chaired by Mr Chris Boomer, Head of Planning for Mid Ulster District Council.

Initially only one hour was timetabled for the many issues involved with a Q&A session to be held afterward. However, the great number of objections to gold-mining in Tyrone ensured that this meeting lasted until 10.30pm approximately.

Many people attended this event including interest groups such as CAMIO, Save our Sperrins etc. Naturally, the Tyrone Hibernians were represented by several divisions who have heavily campaigned against mining from the start. The threat to health and safety caused by mining in Greencastle, Omagh, Glenhordial and throughout the North is immense. To promote awareness of the threat to Tyrone and greater environ CAMIO will be holding a two day public information event in Omagh on the 14th and 15th of December. Staffed in part by Tyrone A.O.H members and members of the local DrMaginn division.

Tyrone A.O.H noted that no Councillors from Omagh and Fermanagh District Council attended. Clearly demonstrating their continued lack of leadership. Perhaps if SF had been in attendance they would have noted the resentment of many people and communities to Gold-Mining and be prepared to represent their electorate.

With many thanks to: Tyrone AOH for the original posting.
