    Hi SCW, Please note my response to AGL last week when they failed to stay within their agreed geological mapping boundaries.

    To AGL:
    Hi Therese,
    Appreciate the update,
    Though can I confirm the aerial geological data mapping actually extended down as far as Mammy Johnson’s Creek which is about half way into Stroud Road. The ‘circle round’ of the helicopter was undertaken over the creek itself with the mapping beginning inline with what looked to be the Stroud Road Hall.

    I must advise you, the locals I spoke with on the day were not impressed especially after being advised of the intended mapping path!

    It does seem as though AGL are trying to squeeze the maximum area out of the agreement?

    Please note photos & video were taken on the day.

    Please advise
