Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2012
27 Whitehaven Coal Limited -- Annual Report 2012 Live 24-hour camera monitoring trial with EPA Whitehaven and the Environment Protection Authority have been trialling the use of a 24-hour real time monitoring camera at the company's Tarrawonga operation. The camera allows both the EPA and Whitehaven representative to remotely view operations at the mine. The trial has been extremely successful with both parties regularly accessing the data and using it to ensure activity at the mine is optimised to ensure the best environmental outcomes possible. While the trial has ended, Whitehaven is investigating the funding of the camera on a long-term basis. Rehabilitation monitoring Whitehaven has introduced the use of highly-innovative techniques to monitor and manage its rehabilitation efforts, particularly at the Canyon mine site that was closed in 2010. Remotely sensed data from satellite imagery, LiDAR and EM38 (electro-magnetic survey) have been combined with targeted field survey to provide a thorough picture of performance of all levels of the rehabilitation. The monitoring has found good regeneration of the former mine site, particularly native perennial grass and herb cover. Tree and shrub plantings are also developing well and monitoring of the agricultural lands show performance is consistent with the agricultural control areas.
