Excellent views from atop a prominent granite outcrop in Balmoral Forest Block looking roughly east to north. Mt Randall, traversed by the Bibbulmun Track, is the prominent hill visible in the distance. The bauxite mining in the last few years has become a prominent part of the vista when looking south-west from Mt Randall, Cuthbert, Vincent and Mt Cooke – prominent hills along the Bibbulmun Track. The forested hills in the foreground of this photograph have recently been drilled by Alcoa contractors to investigate future mining potential. Upland Jarrah also happen to be a complex ecosystems with pronounced and sometimes subtle variations in vegetation species from one site to the next, and beautiful as a bushwalking destination
This aerial image clearly shows the large size of Alcoa’s Huntly bauxite mine, with the yellow gravel pits and haul roads visible against the backdrop of forest green. This image does not show the entire Huntly site. Note: mining has reached the Serpentine River and may not proceed further
