Hillgrove mine gets on top of dam pong - Local News - News - General - Armidale Express

Hillgrove mine gets on top of dam pong - Local News - News - General - Armidale Express: "OWNERS of the Hillgrove mine believe they have the troublesome odour problem, if not completely beaten, at least under control.
Straits Resources Pty Ltd say their efforts to reduce the pungent smell of hydrogen sulphide coming from a tailings dam have resulted in ‘a dramatic improvement’.

Some residents near the mine claims the odour can still be ‘overpowering’, adding that any easing in the concentration of the gas can be put down to a change in the wind.

But resident manager of the mine, Peter Hosking, told The Express that measures undertaken in accordance with advice from the Office of Environment and Heritage (OE&H) had produced ‘good results’."
