Featured Project — Minjar Gold Pty Ltd Conservation Management Plan

Terratree prepared a Strategic Conservation Management Plan (CMP) to address the environmental risks and management issues associated with Minjar’s mineral exploration activities proposed to occur in DPaW managed lands in the south Murchison region. The Strategic CMP was developed in accordance with the Guidelines for Conservation Management Plans Relating to Mineral Exploration on Department of Environment and Conservation Managed Lands (DEC 2011). The document was endorsed by DPaW and was determined to be ‘comprehensive’ and ‘adequate’ to allow the assessment of potential impacts to conservation values’. By developing a regional strategic approach to conservation management planning, Terratree has ensured that approvals for each progressive phase as Minjar’s exploration programme are expedited.

The Strategic Conservation Management Plan was developed based on the targeted flora and fauna surveys (see below) that Terratree also conducted. Our capacity to complete both field surveys and develop management plans enables us to seamlessly integrate the approvals process, ensuring that the works are well planned, provide sufficient supporting information, are appropriate for fulfilling regulatory requirements and meet current policies.
