This is a call out for the Lake Cowal Gathering to be held over the Easter weekend Friday 10 April - Sunday 12 April 2009

For the past 10 years Wiradjuri Traditional Owners and their supporters have kept their feet rooted firmly in the ground against the worlds largest gold mining company Barrick Gold.

With their wads of cash and giant machinery Barrick Gold continues to desecrate Lake Cowal with a proposal to expand into the lake bed, doubling the size of the mine and extracting a further 53 million tonnes of ore from the open cut pit. This will add another 11 years to the life of the mine (until 2024). Barrick's water usage would increase to over 5GL per year.
