We take our commitments to the environment extremely seriously and operate to reduce long-term impacts.

Our objective is to transition from mining land use to the next sustainable land use, thereby supporting the relinquishment of our mining leases.

Our 10 Green Guidelines outline a range of processes, procedures, obligations and legislative requirements that enable us to uphold our environmental values:

Environmental monitoring

Monitor and respond to noise, vibration, dust and fumes to minimise impact.

Reporting

Report all environmental hazards and incidents to supervisor.

Water

Protect waterways and groundwater. Be prepared for spill and water release events.

Rehabilitation

Use effective erosion and sediment controls, and rehabilitate land to final landform requirements.

Compliance

Comply with Environmental Approvals, and ensure approvals and permits are granted before starting work.

Plants & animals

Protect plants and animals, and prevent the spread of weeds and pests.

Waste

Reduce, reuse, recycle and recover to minimise waste and tailings/rejects.

Housekeeping

Keep every work area secure and tidy, and maintain housekeeping.

Cultural heritage

Protect and respect cultural heritage and other traditional finds.

Hazardous substances

Store and secure chemical and hazardous substances appropriately.

Rehabilitation

We are committed to the progressive rehabilitation of our assets to continue to mine and operate in a socially conscious way, and drive down our financial assurance and future closure costs.

At the Isaac Plains Mine, the rehabilitation objective has been to create a safe, stable and sustainable landform using cost-effective spoil placement methods. We have undertaken rehabilitation on a progressive basis in consultation with environmental, technical services and production teams, and all rehabilitation has been carried out with future land use in mind, with the aim to return the site to grazing pasture.

In the last five years, Stanmore Resources has rehabilitated substantially more land than the previous owners in the 10 years prior to Stanmore’s acquisition of the Isaac Plains Mine.
