Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2010
18 environment Whitehaven Coal Limited is committed to ensuring its projects are carried out in accordance with site specific protocols for environmental management. Each site has its own set of specific environmental management plans designed to ensure minimal impact from the operation on the environment and local community. As Whitehaven has increased its productive capacity over the last 12 months, it has also increased its resources to ensure appropriate environmental outcomes across our range of operations. Whitehaven has welcomed to its Environmental team two new staff members who have recently completed an Environmental Cadetship following their successful completion of Environmental Science degrees through the University of New England and the University of Newcastle. Both new recruits were sourced from the local area, again confirming our commitment to providing for local employment opportunities where possible. Our most significant achievement over the last 12 months has been the completion of reshaping works associated with the Canyon mine site, which ceased production in July 2009. Rehabilitation of the Canyon site has focused on reshaping of the final void, establishment of groundcover across the reshaped area, water management structures and additional tubestock planting associated with woodland establishment across the site.
