Improvements to air quality control
Mount Isa Mines' Air Quality Control Centre was established in 1975 and is continually improved as scientific findings and new technologies emerge.
We review engineering approaches, operating procedures and monitoring programs for ways to reduce emissions. We also operate and monitor more air quality sensors than required by our Environmental Authority (EA) to provide additional information to guide our approaches.
