Located on the edge of the city of Mount Isa, our mining lease spans 32,000 hectares and is 52 kilometres long from north to south. We recognise the material issues faced by our operations, and take our environmental performance very seriously. We work hard to reduce the impacts of our operations, setting ourselves robust environmental performance targets.
As modern regulations and accepted science evolve, so does Mount Isa Mines. We work to minimise and mitigate any negative impact from our activities and are always looking for ways to improve our performance.
Management accountability is key to our environmental approach. We undertake regular audits to assess performance against our standards and to better understand and manage sustainability risks.
In 2011, Mount Isa Mines transitioned to a new Environmental Authority which includes modern regulatory conditions for key environmental values such as air, water, land, waste, and noise and vibration.
