Abstract

TNG Ltd, under wholly owned subsidiary Enigma Mining Limited, is proposing to develop and operate the Mt Peake Project, a polymetallic (titanium, vanadium, iron) mine, located approximately 235 km north-northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory (NT). GHD Pty Ltd (GHD) has been engaged by TNG to prepare the NOI and to progress environmental baseline studies and any approvals documentation for the Project.

TNG LTD LTD MOUNT PEAKE PROJECT Page | 8 3. FIELD METHODOLOGY This report details the objectives, methods, results and discussion of outcomes from a survey undertaken by APM Pty Ltd in September/ October 2017. 3.1 CONTRIBUTING AUTHORS The field survey methodology was designed by Principal Biologist Dr Mitch Ladyman. The field survey was undertaken by Dr Mitch Ladyman, with assistance from APM biologists Joshua Keen and Sarah Flemington. The reporting was completed by Dr Mitch Ladyman with assistance from Joshua Keen and Sarah Flemington. 3.2 AREA OF INVESTIGATION The haul/ access road is approximately 93.6 km. The formation will be 13 m wide, comprising 2 x 5 m lanes, 2 x 0.5 m shoulders, 2 x 1 m drains. The clearing corridor will need to be 25 m wide to allow for construction resulting in 234 ha of clearing over the length of the haul/access road, as documented in the Draft EIS. As an accurate final alignment has not yet been determined, the GHD 2015 baseline Flora and Vegetation Assessment reports on a haul/access road survey corridor width of 1 km. Within this corridor all vegetation types have been mapped; these have been further amalgamated into five fauna habitat types to inform the fauna habitat mapping used consistently through all of the GHD fauna reporting. The 1 km haul/access road alignment corridor provides the fundamental boundary for the extent of this current survey for the BFRW. Survey of a 1 km corridor not only allows flexibility in planning the final alignment but it also gives a better representative cover of the extent and distribution of the species of conservation significance along the alignment if those species do occur. The borefield access road is approximately 38 km in length and comprises only a small construction footprint no more than 10 m wide along a predefined route along an existing track. Therefore a survey corridor width of 25 m was determined to be sufficient to adequately assess the potential for impacts along this track. In their review of the Draft EIS and the supplementary information, the NTEPA defined the extent of further searching required for the BFRW which was determined by the following: The known and potential distribution of BFRW, based on previous records and the availability of suitable habitat within the project area: and The extent of previous survey work undertaken by GHD ecologists for the the Project. Therefore the area of investigation for this survey is defined as the borefields access road and the haul/access road corridor as mapped by GHD but not including the area surveyed by GHD in November 2016 (GHD, 2017).
