''Drilling is underway at the proposed Kimberley LNG Gas precinct between Quondong and James Price Point on the Dampier Peninsula. Drilling under floodlights day and night at intervals along the road. A tower has already been installed about 9km north of the Quondong Point turnoff.''
I do like to hear news from the Kimberlies & the Invaders have not taken Over … not completely.

<strong>Michael Caton of 'The Castle" fame, Neil McKenzie Jabirr Jabirr and Nik Wevers representing the Broome Community NO GAS campaign delivered the following postcards to Parliament House in Canberra.
Dear Prime Minister,
The Commonwealth Government is responsible for the final sign off on the LNG hub proposed for James Price Point on the coast just north of Broome.
It makes no sense to destroy the environmental and cultural values of Broome and the Kimberley coast when there are alternatives. Pipe the gas to the Pilbara or process it on a floating LNG hub.
Gough Whitlam understood the value of the Great Barrier Reef.
Bob Hawke understood the value of the Franklin River.
Prime Minister, you have an historic opportunity to protect the values of this unspoilt part of the world. Don't let the Kimberley become an industrial wasteland.
Say NO to a gas hub on the Kimberley coast.
12,000 Australians. ''</strong>
