The Proposal

Gadtech Materials Pty Ltd has proposed to modify an existing level 2 quarry that is currently permitted to extract and screen (via static screen only) up to 10,000 cubic metres per annum. Blasting may currently be permitted with the written approval of the Director, EPA and Director of Mines.  This proposal seeks approval to modify the hours of operation, introduce crushing, mechanised / vibratory screening and an approved blast management plan to allow blasting to occur without additional approval being required.


The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA). An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been lodged in support of the above proposal.


Public Exhibition of Documentation

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EIS) were made available for public inspection. The public consultation period has now closed.


Environmental Impact Statement

The purpose of the EIS is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental impacts of the proposal.

The EIS was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of an EIS which were provided by the Board.
