GET YOUR ADVERTS IN FOR THE RURAL NEWS RE- THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES

August 26th, 2010

SEE YOU AT THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES @ QUEENSLAND

HI,

It’s that time again! Thought I should give you as much notice as possible…

Planning for the annual Torbanlea Picnic Races on Saturday October 16 is well underway. This year, like 2009, Wide Bay Rural Weekly is a major media partner, and will feature the event over a 3 week series, maximizing promotion, especially to encourage bus bookings, camp site bookings, and all those people who prepare for Fashion of the Field.

The biggest advantage of featuring the event in Wide Bay Rural Weekly, apart from the hugely discounted rates on offer, is the insertion of Wide Bay Rural Weekly into Bundaberg’s NewsMail, Fraser Coast Chronicle and Gympie Times, which provides virtually triple the coverage.

This year the event is likely to be bigger than ever, bus bookings already, campsites and stalls booked already, folk from as far as New Zealand enquiring, and now even Corporate Marquee bookings available for groups 10, 20, 40 and more.

We invite you to consider participation, promote your message and support Torbanlea’s biggest fundraiser of the year. I look forward to opportunity to discuss this with you, and will follow up with a phone call in the next few days.

Should you have any query please feel free to contact me at your earliest opportunity.

  1. Bus bookings with Wide Bay Transit and G & D Ross Bus Charters
  2. Campsite bookings
  3. Entries for Fashion of the Field
  4. Team entries for the Team Tug of War event
  5. Riders and horses nominating for events
  6. The newest addition…..corporate tables and marquee bookings…groups of 10, 20 , 40, 50 or more can prebook to have a set place ready for their group, in the shade of a marquee, with table and chairs and includes the gate entry….for just $25 per head…and it’s all set up and cleaned up for you….

For event details folk can email torbanleapicnicraces@live.com.au and for participation in the promotion, and program, supporting this major fundraiser email edith.rutherford@apnnewspapers.com.au

We look forward to your bookings and seeing everyone on the day…

Cheers for now,

Edith Rutherford

COLTON MINE PROJECT HAS LODGED EMP FOR ASSESSMENT OF COAL MINE PROJECT

August 16th, 2010

Mr Henry Sapiecha


Dear Henry,

I am writing to inform you that Northern Energy Corporation Limited (NEC) has lodged the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for its proposed Colton mine project with the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) for their review.

We at NEC have made every effort to ensure that we keep all interested community members informed about the proposed Colton mine project. You are receiving this email because you have indicated to us that you would like to be kept up to date about our progress, and you provided us with your email address. We have written you a letter as well, and this should arrive in the coming days.

Activities we have undertaken to inform people about our project include holding community information sessions in Maryborough, Howard and Aldershot, introduction of various feedback mechanisms including the 1800 information line, updated project information on the company website and efforts to promote awareness of the EMP process and the Plan itself to enable community members and other interested parties to comment and provide feedback on the plan.

The EMP for Colton mine project includes reports with baseline studies on all project related issues and highlights measures proposed by NEC to ensure that the project’s environmental impacts are managed appropriately.

DERM will undertake an initial review of the EMP and will advise statutory requirements for further advertising and public comment in due course.

In the meantime, if you are interested in getting a copy of the EMP for your own review you can visit the project website and download a copy for yourself. You will see that there are quite a few files, and some of them are quite large. We have done our best to break them down into small reports and have provided enough detail in the title block to allow you to make a decision about which parts of the report you wish to download.

The address to access the full EMP, including all of the appendices and supporting reports, is:

http://www.northernenergy.com.au/projects/maryborough/environment-manage.html

Queries or comments may be directed to the project

toll free number on 1800 266 296

or email at coltonmineinfo@northernenergy.com.au.

Yours sincerely

Mark Turner

Chief Operating Officer

Northern Energy Corporation
