The management and minimisation of air emissions by mining operations is required to protect sensitive receptors in the vicinity of our operations. Air quality is managed according to the Sustainability Performance Standards.
Dust generated by mining activity is controlled through mine design, haulage planning, and dust suppression to ensure emissions are within compliance limits. Additional controls are in place to manage and mitigate emission of particulates (GHG and dust) within and beyond our operation boundaries. This includes associated monitoring to allow the effectiveness of controls to be routinely assessed, validated, and adjusted if required.
In FY21, all operations were in full compliance with regulated limits for particulate emissions. Monitoring of depositional dust at our operations met licence conditions. Refer to our FY21 ESG Performance Summary Data document for our performance around our air emissions related to GHG emissions.
