As noted in the August Mining Extension 1 (the Proposal) update, a Request for Director-General’s Requirements Supporting Documentation was submitted to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure in July 2012. Following from the documents submission, Director-General’s Requirements (DGRs) for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement have been issued. Based on the DGRs and feedback received during stakeholder engagement undertaken to date, a range of technical studies are currently being prepared. The studies will determine the potential impacts from the Proposal and develop measures that would be implemented to avoid, minimise and monitor potential impacts. These technical studies will form part of an Environmental Impact Statement that will be lodged and subsequently placed on public exhibition prior to assessment.
