New Acland stage three expansion EA approved

Issued: 28 Jun 2022

In accordance with the recommendations of the Land Court decision and the Coordinator-General, the independent regulator has approved an amended Environmental Authority (EA) for the proposed third stage of the New Acland project.

The EA only takes effect upon the grant of a mining tenure, which is yet to be provided.

It includes a number of strict conditions, including ensuring that air and noise emissions from proposed activities are managed and monitored effectively so the specified limits are not exceeded.

Should there be any activity prior to all approvals being granted, the independent regulator will monitor compliance with environmental obligations in accordance with the EA.
