Committed to a clean, safe and healthy workplace and environment
We are committed to our environmental programs. We have integrated environmental management in all aspects of our business, and assess all possible environmental risks with the appropriate care and effectiveness. Where possible, we prevent and reduce the generation of waste at the source.
Our environmental objectives and targets are regularly reviewed to ensure that they adequately reflect our commitment to continually improving our system.
Going over and above the environmental standards
All of Cardross Mining’s activities and facilities are undertaken in compliance with legislative requirements, Australian Standards and regionally specific best practice. Examples of regionally specific best practice include beneficial re-use of earthmoving equipment tyres, roofing of bunded areas and the use of hydro-cyclone oil/water separators.
At all working projects, monthly environmental compliance audits are undertaken by the Principal’s Environmental Coordinator on Cardross Mining against the requirements of the Environmental Authority, Environmental Management Overview Strategy, Plan of Operations, Environmental Management System and Australian Standards.
All projects undertaken comply with specific noise goals with consideration to Queensland Environmental Protection Agency requirements. This is achieved by a ‘desktop review’ of noise levels for proposed drill and blast activities. Vibration is minimised by the Shotplus blast program, which communicates ideal pattern designs for specific tasks.
