S45C changes to proposal:
Attachment 1 to Statement 854 – Realignment of the infrastructure corridor and the Kalgan Creek excess water pipeline realignment, and re-development and relocation of two existing groundwater bores – change to proposal approved under s45C on 28 March 2012.
Attachment 2 to Statement 854 – Removal of Infrastructure Corridor Option 6, changes to Project Area – change to proposal approved under section 45C on 7 January 2013.

Attachment 4 to Statement 854
- Construction, commissioning, and operation of a new tailings storage facility in previously mined pits in Area 3.
- The change is for abstraction of recirculation water as a result of seepage from in-pit storage of tailings. Abstraction of up to 3 gigalitres per annum (GL/a) to account for recirculation water in addition to 20 GL/a for dewatering is required (total of 23 GL/a). There is no change to the abstraction of groundwater that is not recirculation water, or the extent of groundwater drawdown from dewatering authorised under Schedule 1 of MS 854 (up to 140 metres of drawdown to approximately 500 metres relative to sea level (RSL)).
- Figures 2 and 3 have been referenced in the Key Characteristics Table.
The conceptual mine layout and associated infrastructure for the proposal in Schedule 1 of MS 854 (Figure 3) has been updated to reflect the changes described above and the elements of the proposal that have been implemented in accordance with the key characteristics of the approved proposal.
The reference to figures depicting the location of the physical and operational elements have been corrected in the Key Characteristics Table (to Figures 2 and 3) as it is these figures that show the mine layout and associated infrastructure for the proposal. – change to proposal approved under section 45C on 2 October 2020.
