Following the conclusion of an extensive review of Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd's draft mining operations plan (MOP) for the White Rock Quarry, on 5 July 2021 the South Australian Government has issued advice to Hanson regarding information gaps identified in the MOP. This advice has been issued in accordance with section 73G of the Mining Act 1971, which obligates government to consult with Hanson on required alterations. Accordingly, Hanson have been invited to make a submission to government. Following receipt of Hanson's submission, the Department for Energy and Mining (DEM) will finalise and issue a formal, detailed notification of required alterations to the White Rock Quarry MOP.
Given the significant information gaps identified by Government in Hanson's MOP, which include matters raised by community in relation to the quarry, it is anticipated that the formal notification will be issued over the coming fortnight.
Consistent with earlier advice to quarry stakeholders, the comprehensive formal notification of required alterations that will be issued to Hanson - commonly known as a request for information (RFI) - will be published on this website at the time it is issued.
