DMIRS guidance on Risk Assessment and Environmental Outcomes now available

The department has published two guidance notes to help support Mining Proposal submissions.
Date: Friday, 19 January 2018

Following a series of workshops on the 2016 Mining Proposal Guidelines held in 2017, the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) sought stakeholder feedback on its draft risk assessments and environmental outcomes guidance notes.

The draft guidance notes were based on feedback from the workshops as well as departmental feedback from the first assessments under the new 2016 Guideline for Mining Proposals in WA - April 2016.

All the feedback has been incorporated and the final Environmental Risk Assessment for Mining Proposals and Mine Closure Plans and Environmental Outcomes for Mining Proposals documents are now available on the department website.
