Sandfire is committed to managing land resources in a respectful and sustainable manner. We aim to protect and preserve areas of ecological or biodiverse importance, prevent land degradation and return disturbed land to a stable and productive condition through progressive rehabilitation.
The impact of our operations varies depending on the phase of exploration and mining and the country of operation. We explore over large areas however impacts are low-risk and consist of tracks, gridlines and drill pads. Our mining activities are confined to a small area but have higher risk activities (such as waste dumps and TSFs) over a longer period of time.
Sandfire is governed by our Environmental Policy and managed in accordance with our regulator licences, Environmental Management Plan and Biodiversity Management Plan. We are committed to protecting biodiversity by considering ecological values and integrating progressive rehabilitation into the life-cycle of our operations. This will allow us to effectively address our environmental legacies and promote a safe, stable, non-polluting, self-sustaining agreed end land use.
