The Federal Government has declared MMG’s proposal at South Marionoak a controlled action to be assessed under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act.
MMG welcomes the decision and remains committed to ensuring it seeks all required approvals for a new tailings storage facility and extend the life of the Rosebery Mine.
Our priority is to find the safest and most balanced solution that secures the future of the 85 year-old Rosebery mine and the 500 people and their families that it supports.
The community should expect that decisions are based on the best of science, analysis and compliance with stringent Federal and State government environmental approvals.
We look forward to working with the relevant authorities during the assessment process.
