Dear Capertee Valley Alliance, I was born in Wollar which is now virtually a ghost town due to the expansion of Wilpingjong Mines owned by American company Peabody. Four years ago Peabody purchased most of the cottages in Wollar told residents at a public meeting that they would renovate the houses and use them for fly in/fly out employees instead of having to use motels in Mudgee. They lied! Every house purchased has been fenced off and "condemned". The Save Wollar Community Movement is fighting a losing battle to keep a village with a long history of early settlement. My ancestors came over the mountains in the 1850's to settle in the idyllic village. Most are buried in the cemetery but Peabody cares little about the history of the area. As Wilpingjong Mine edges closer to Wollar, the last few residents will be forced out due to the noise, dust and pollution of Wollar Creek which runs into the beautiful Goulburn River (recognised by the NSW Parks & Wildlife as being one of the last wild rivers in NSW. We all know about Bylong Valley (just 10 k's from Wollar) being destroyed. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO CAPERTEE! I have been a regular visitor to Capertee and Turon Gates and the stark beauty of the area is stunning. It won't be for long if Airly Mine expands. The landscape will be forever scarred and the crystal clear creeks and waterways will be a thing of the past. Visit the "Save Wollar" website for more information. We will help you if you want us to expose the lies that off-shore companies whose profits do not stay here. Thanks for reading my rant.
