Project
Proposal description: 

The proposal is for the continuation of mining operations at the Fimiston site, and expansion and deepening of the Superpit to 600 metres via the Golden Pike Cutback. Additional waste dumps will be created to the north of the pit to contain 140 million tonnes of waste rock. The Fimiston I and II tailings storage facilities and/or the Kaltails tailings storage facility will be expanded to contain the additional tailings.

This is a reassessment, pursuant to the Minister's decision to remit the proposal under s43 (see the original assessment and Report 1270 here).
