Githabul Nation meet to clarify CSG licencing

A GITHABUL tribal meeting was held in Woodenbong last Friday amid concerns 1120 square km of land under Native Title could be mined for coal seam gas.

About 30 members of the nation voted to call for an extraordinary meeting of the Githabul Nation Aboriginal Corporation (GNAC) to get some answers.

Elder Gloria Williams alleged deals were being done between the GNAC and mining interests without the consent of the rest of the nation.

"Everyone is in agreement. We don't want coal seam gas," she said.

"We need to ask the directors (of GNAC) where they stand on this."

Mrs Williams and other Githabul members are calling for the directors of GNAC to attend a meeting to be held in Woodenbong on Friday.
