New Protect Karangahake Campaign
Protect Karangahake had its beginnings around kitchen tables and in packed lounges, as our community gathered to discuss our response to New Talisman Gold Mines gaining permission to extract gold ore from the Karangahake Mountain.
Gaining numbers and momentum, and with support from Coromandel Watchdog, we are united in our opposition to mining in the Gorge.
We believe in the power of community, and the strength of standing and working together. We also believe the Gorge isn’t just our backyard, it’s also one of the New Zealand’s most popular recreational spaces and that fact should have been given more consideration when permission to begin minerals extraction was granted.
