I most definitely will be watching tonight.

I need as much information I can get on NSF, plenty of merit in it.

Hi everyone,
must say the story was quite depressing. I shed a tear while watching Peters heartbreak in Episode 2, but tend to agree that the science is transferable and needs to be replicated as much as possible.

I hope Stuart will document on this forum, works undertaken at his new property as a means of promoting NSF.

Best wishes to Peter, Stuart and families.

God bless, froggo

Hi Duane,
Episode 1 & 2 made for some sobering viewing. Emotions ranged from disbelief to anger and frustration. These feelings must surely be shared by thousands of people who follow NSF and are deeply passionate about it's future?

just read article out of "The Age" newspaper.
"ANGLO AMERICAN SADDLES UP FOR FIGHT"
"Horse health is again set to be a key battleground in the Hunter Valley"

"Anglo American has armed itself with veterinary experts before a renewed attempt to have its Drayton coal expansion in the Hunter Valley approved.
The multinational miner has twice failed to have the expansion approved, with the NSW Planning and Assessment Commission rejecting it out of concern for the health of two horse stud farms within 2 kilometres of the proposed mine"

Pardon my ignorance, but where does that leave Tarwyn Park, especially if the Kepco pit is to be placed next to a horse/ cattle operating farm?
Or is that all academic because Kepco own the lot?
regards
Andy

Hi Duane,

i just wanted to qualify what i wrote last night, sleep deprived and bleary eyed ( we have a baby ).
If there is any anger or frustration, it is directed at multi nationals who can come in, buy up and develop. Also frustrated that our own governments seem oblivious to the priceless heritage quality of Tarwyn Park.
I admire Stuart Andrews for making a brave decision.
Best wishes to Peter, Stuart and families.
regards
Andy

Hi Andy
Coal is contributing to CO2 emissions.
Coal is cheap energy which the world demands.
Governments need the cash from royalties.

It's all about $$$$$$$$$$$

Tarwyn Park is now owned by the Koreans...they purchased 10,000 hectares of freehold title.

TWO thorougbreed studs, Bylong Station and Tarwyn Park.

Now they need to submit an EIS to NSW State Govt Planning dept, in order to get a mining licence.

So far they have only ticked 1 of 12 boxes. However, Govt and Industry are bedfellows.....there's a slim chance they wont be allowed to mine but.......

Hi Duane,
maybe I'm naïve,
but does this article on " The Age" website have any bearing on Tarwyn Park's future?
read below
cheers

" Landowners in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales have succeeded in preventing a coal miner from exploring on their properties, in a ruling that the miner warned could see all natural resources in the state "sterilised".

Speaking after the NSW Land and Environment Court overturned Hume Coal's permission to explore on private lands in the Southern Highlands, the miner urged the state government to overturn the ruling.

The case focused on section 31 of the state's Mining Act, which says explorers cannot disturb "significantly improved" parts of private property.

Justice Preston ruled on Tuesday that paddocks containing crops or equestrian facilities were the product of labour and could therefore be considered to be "significant improvements".
