Environmental impact statement
The proposed rehabilitation plan, outlined in detail within the draft environmental impact statement (EIS), aims to target the remediation of existing acid and metalliferous drainage contamination sources and the interruption of other contaminant source-pathway-receptor linkages.
It also aims to address, as far as achievable, the physical aspects of the site that require remediation - namely the flow path of the East Branch of the Finnis River and the quality of fluvial landscapes.
While the primary objective of this project is to restore the environmental condition onsite and downstream of the mine, the secondary objective is to create stable landforms to support future land use.
The draft EIS is with Northern Territory Environmental Protection Authority (NTEPA) for assessment.
You can read the EIS on the NTEPA website register.
