Woodlawn Mine Visit

Wednesday 13th November 2013


 A dozen riders turned up for the mid-week ride to the Woodlawn Mine at Tarago.

This old copper mine is now receiving 25% of Sydney's garbage nightly by train, from which methane is extracted to power a bioreactor.

A small scale fishfarm and hydroponics  are currently being trialed using bore water from the site.

A thank you to Henry Gundry, Environment & Operations Manager for organising the tour.
