The modification being sought includes expanding the mines operational lifefrom August 31, 2018, to December 31, 2024, increasingtheapproved maximum ore extraction from 1.2 to 1.6 million tonnes, constructing and using a storage area for waste rock storage, constructing and using a vehicle crossing over Spring Creek and amending the project boundary.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has recommended to the Planning and Assessment Commission that the modification, put forward byDiversified Minerals, whobought Unity Mining,be approved.

Diversified Minerals is notseeking approval to use cyanide at the Majors Creek site, or to change the design of the approved tailings storage facility, like Unity Mining did.

Deua Valley resident Tom Wells, who opposesthe mine, is “disappointed” in the recommendation.

“The department gives this recommendation for approval despite the overwhelming majority of the local community and broader public opposing it,” he said.

“Two shire councils also object: Palerang, in which the mine site is located, and Eurobodalla, whose primary drinking water source,the Deua River, stands to receive any pollution that escapes the mine site.”

Mr Wells said, while assessment commissions determination will matter, the gold mine is “not viable” without the latest modification being approved.

“The current mining license expires on August 31, 2018, and ore extraction has not yet commenced. It takes one to two years just to bring the mine up to full operation,” he said.

“The extension of operational lifeis a crux of the modification.”

The planning commission is holding a meeting at Braidwood Serviceman’s Clubon July 26 at 9am to hear the publics’ views on the report and recommendation before determining the proposal. Speakers must register by contacting Aaron Brown on 9383 2112 before July 21to make a presentation.
