Stop Mines 23?
We are considering moving to La Creuse from Charente department (16). We have been over for visits on several occassions now and really love the area around Bourganeuf and also the area south of Aubusson. We were at the market in Felletin the other week and there was a stall with some eco activist people called Stop Mines 23 and although we didn't talk with them they had some literature about the threat of potential mining in La Creuse. I have been on their website and it appears that an exploratory license has been granted to a multinational company to carry out research? I got this information from the website of StopMines 23, but the translation to English may not be great? Seems the area under consideration covers several communes around Gouzon in the north east of the Department.
Does anyone know anything about the potential for mining activity in Creuse?
Here's a link to their website:-
