We reject any suggestion we have acted unlawfully and our works at the proposed tailings storage site have been limited to track work without any impact to ‘old-growth’ forest, however, we have been forced to pause our works at South Marionoak whilst we deal with unwarranted legal threats from the Bob Brown Foundation.
Our current approvals cover this work under state legislation and are necessary for compliance with Commonwealth assessments. We will continue to work with the Government in relation to the approval requirements for the project.
Our intent has always been to find the most balanced solution for Tasmanians, our 500 employees and the township of Rosebery. We believe decisions need to be made based on the best of science and proper analysis and not any one view.
