Xstrata Coal has submitted its Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to the Queensland Coordinator-General for the Xstrata Coal Wandoan Project. Sixty-two submissions were received by the Coordinator-General on the original EIS from affected property owners, members of the public, and government and non-government organisations. The Supplementary EIS responds to these submissions and updates and refines the Project’s potential impacts, benefits and proposed mitigation actions. It also incorporates advances made by Xstrata Coal in planning for construction and mining operations, as well as additional assessments conducted because of changes to regulatory requirements for air, noise and water.
This publication marks an important step forward in the environmental approvals process for the proposed mine in Wandoan. We are committed to progressing the Xstrata Coal Wandoan Project through State and Commonwealth Government approvals processes.
The Supplementary EIS is an additional document and comprises three volumes, the structure of the document is shown in the graphic below. The Executive Summary is available to download on this page by clicking the graphic below, or going to the link at the bottom of the page. The three volumes are broken into chapters and can be also accessed by clicking the graphic below or by using the text links below.
