For more than three years the Avon and Hills Mining Awareness Group (AHMAG) has been informing Avon Valley residents of the negative impacts of open-cut mining on the environment.
In consultation with environmental scientist Rosemary Madacsi, AHMAG graphic artist Sandra Harms has produced two images which clearly show what will happen to creeks and underground aquifers once the top layer of sand, gravel or bauxite is removed in the mining process.
