WA Annual Environmental Reports

Graham Marshall - Thursday, June 06, 2013

The  WA Department of Mines and Petroleum reports that in 2012 it has received more than 7,000 mining, petroleum and geothermal applications.

And thanks to a recently launched online access system, members of the public now have greater access to some of the detailed environmental plans mining companies submit through Annual Environmental Reports (AERs).

These detail a company's mining activities, as well as disturbance areas and completed environmental rehabilitation works.

The new online system for submitting AERs to the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum provides a number of benefits, including:

1.  Providing the public with easily accessible information on how resource companies are responding to their environmental responsibilities; and

2.  Improving data consistency, efficiency and transparency across the department's services.

The online system will become compulsory for Mining Companies to use from July 1 2013.
