Mine Lease, Planning and Approvals

Alcoa liaises with Government agencies such as Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC), Forest Products Commission (FPC) and the Water Corporation (WC) to ensure that mining operations and other forest operations are integrated into one land management plan.  In particular, Alcoa's schedules for collecting dieback information, installing survey pegging, drilling and clearing need to be coordinated with burning, logging and timber salvage operations.  Annual meetings are held in August to identify and rectify any conflicts between drilling, mining, logging and burning plans.
