NEW BRUNSWICK – SWN Resources employees and police officers are facing more protesters, as seismic testing continues in the area.

Tension is building as opponents to shale gas exploration and development have set up a new camp on Highway 11 near the community of Laketon, near Kouchibouguac National Park.

SWN Resources has begun the next phase of exploration and on Wednesday more than 30 protesters had gathered.

There was also a strong police presence with 20 police cars in the area.

SWN employees had been laying geophone lines used in their testing, but late Wednesday afternoon they removed all of the equipment that was near the new camp.

RCMP officers also visited the site and tried to talk with some of the protesters, who told officers they were upset about what was going on.
