Programs for Environment Protection and Rehabilitation (PEPR)

Sibelco Oraparinna Barite Mine and Mt Fitton Talc Mine

Eco Logical Australia has worked with Sibelco to write Programs for Environment Protection and Rehabilitation (PEPR) for their, Oraparinna Barite Mine and Mt Fitton Talc Mine.

Both mines have operated since the 1940s, long before the Mine Act 1978 was introduced. As such, an absence of historical records of environmental change over the duration of mining operation created challenges with writing PEPRs for the mines. Eco Logical Australia’s mine closure experts were recruited to collaborate with Sibelco staff to write PEPRs for each mine that would ensure approval of the PEPR and enable progression of the mine closure process.
