Frack Free Kimberley and supporters rallied outside the inaugural annual general meeting of Texan fracking company Black Mountain on May 27.

Listed on the ASX, Black Mountain plans to frack the Kimberley, near the Fitzroy River in the north west of Western Australia. It is one of one of the oldest and largest wilderness landscapes in the world.

If successful, the Kimberley could become one of the largest onshore gas basins in the world, with potentially thousands of fracking wells drilled and a pipeline snaking through the landscape.
