As part of its community engagement process, Rex Minerals has developed a Community Engagement Plan (CEP) for the Hillside Project. Engagement with the community occurs throughout the life of the Project from developing approvals documents such as the Program for Environment Protection and Rehabilitation (PEPR), through to construction, operation and mine closure.
The Company will update the CEP from time to time and a copy can be found here.
Purpose of the Group
We will deliver this by being...
Dept. of State Development (formerly DMITRE), Rex Minerals Ltd, Local Government (Yorke Peninsula Council), Regional Development Australia (Yorke and Mid North), Local Progress Associations (Pine Point, Ardrossan, Black Point, James Well/Rogues Point), Farmer groups (Ag Bureaux of South Kilkerran and Petersville), YP Landowners Group, Local Traders, Narungga Nations Aboriginal Corporation & YP Tourism Committee.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the 'rainwater tank testing expressions of interest' form that was posted out to surrounding property owners in March 2015. The details about the testing program, such as when it will be undertaken and how the results will be provided back to the property owners, are yet to be confirmed.
Rex is required to undertake rainwater tank testing prior to operations commencing at Hillside to ensure that the water quality is documented before mining starts. The rainwater tank testing program will not be undertaken until it is known when the Hillside mine will be developed. Further opportunities to register interest will be provided. This rainwater tank testing program will be repeated throughout the life of the mine.
If you have any queries, please email email@example.com or phone (08) 8299 7100.
