Site update

  • Late last year a MPLA 2023/000341 was submitted, for the extension of the western screening mound to the south to reduce impacts. The submission is currently under assessment with DEM.

  • We are currently trialling a new haul road dust suppression which holds the moisture in the ground for longer periods, and are reviewing the frequency we use dust suppression on our stockpiles

Daily operations are discussed at every morning and afternoon toolbox the discussion at these meetings include

  • How many water carts need to be running
