Western Australia Iron Ore, Pilbara Strategic Assessment (Commonwealth)

The BHP Billiton Iron Ore Pilbara Strategic Assessment Program was endorsed by the Minister for the Environment and Energy on 11 May 2017 and an Approval Decision for taking actions in accordance with the Program was issued on 19 June 2017.

As described in Part B of the endorsed Program, an Assurance Plan and Offsets Plan are required to be approved prior to undertaking an activity in accordance with the Program. The Assurance Plan and Offsets Plan were approved in accordance with the Program on 11 May 2018. Copies of the documents can be found below.

The purpose of the Assurance Plan is to define the environmental objectives, procedures and governance arrangements to ensure that all future activities within the scope of the Program are undertaken in accordance with the endorsed Program and achieve the Program’s objectives. The Assurance Plan has been developed to manage impacts to the Program Matters, being the listed threatened species Pilbara leaf-nosed bat (Rhinonicteris aurantius), northern quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus), greater bilby (Macrotis lagotis), ghost bat (Macroderma gigas), and olive python (Pilbara subspecies) (Liasis olivaceus barroni). The Plan also includes Program Matter Outcomes which are measureable outcomes that BHP Billiton Iron Ore must meet for each Program Matter to align with the objectives developed for each Program Matter.

As described in Part C of the endorsed Program, where BHP Billiton Iron Ore decides that a proposed action is notifiable, it will develop and issue a Validation Notice to validate that the relevant Program Matters Outcomes will be met. The Program requires that BHP Billiton Iron Ore make the draft Validation Notice for each notifiable action available for public comment for a minimum period of 28 days prior to issuing the Notice.

A final Validation Notice for the Mining Area C – Southern Flank project has been prepared.  Public consultation closed on the 12 June 2018.  A copy of the Notice can be found below.
