Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2011
22 environment Environmental highlights 2011 • Implementation of real time noise monitoring at Narrabri, Tarrawonga and Werris Creek operations. • Recruitment of a full-time Environmental Officer for Narrabri site to cater for expanding operations as commencement of longwall operation approaches. • Focus on community engagement at our open cut mines. This has included circulation of newsletters to surrounding residents to keep them informed of developments. This has also included a Community Open Day at the Werris Creek Mine, where residents were encouraged to attend and discuss any concerns with experts (specialist consultants) in air quality, noise, flora and fauna, groundwater, surface water and cultural heritage. A similar event is planned for the local community around the Tarrawonga site later in the year. Planning is also underway for an Open Day at our Narrabri site to provide the community with the opportunity to visit a working mine and understand the longwall mining process. • General terms of agreement reached with the NSW Department of Primary Industries and the Office of Environment and Heritage on the biodiversity offset requirements for the Narrabri project. The offset package comprises approximately 1200ha of land immediately adjacent to Mt Kaputar National Park which can ultimately be incorporated into the Park management in the near term. It also includes post mining rehabilitation of woodland areas associated with the Narrabri Mining Lease.
