We are committed to monitoring and mitigating the potential impacts of our operations to ensure that air emission controls are effective, and that operations are not having an adverse effect on human health or the environment due to dust and other airborne particulates.
Management and minimisation of air emissions is required to protect sensitive receptors, including both people and the environment, in the vicinity of mining operations. Air quality is managed according to jurisdictional regulations and licences and Evolution’s Sustainability Performance Standards to ensure that air emissions remain within the specified emissions limits. Evolution also manages and assures air quality at our operations in response to material incidents and emerging risks within our industry.
Air quality monitoring equipment is used to monitor and validate the performance and efficiency of our operations’ air quality management systems. Air quality monitoring analysis is carried out by third-party accredited laboratories and is externally reported, as required by environmental licences. We continually seek ways to improve air quality management at all operations.
In FY23, all operations were in full compliance with regulated limits for particulate emissions. Monitoring of depositional dust at the operations met licence conditions.
