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.
