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 MOUNT PEAKE PROJECT Page | 28 Table 5-1: Factors that may influence the presence of BTM and data to be recorded during transect searches. Site Covariate Predicted response Measurement Vegetation cover BTM are not restricted to habitat containing Triodia (Pavey et al. 2011), however reduced cover is likely to increase predation making long-term populations persistence unsustainable (Krtner et al. 2007). Given the presence of a number of predator species at the site, cover is likely to increase probability of BTM occupancy. Record the percentage ground cover strata: tussock/hummock (Triodia spp) and shrubs (Grevillea/Hakea) using aerial imagery/ground-truthing. Fire Age The fire age structure of the habitat can influence productivity and food resource availability. Some portions are always of unsuitable fire age either too young or too old (Dickman et al. 2011). Record time since last fire event within transect (years). Soil Composition BTM have been shown to preference habitat on sand plain/sandy swale and gibber plain habitat type (Pavey et al. 2011). Measure % of transect that intersects Gibber plain and Sand plain habitat. Slope BTM have shown to preference gently sloping to flat topographic positions (Pavey et al. 2011). Measure the % slope of the transect. Rainfall Temporal variance in observations of BTM has shown to correlate with rainfall variability (Dickman et al. 2001), which implies the role of resource pulses. Record rainfall (mm) that has occurred since the time of previous survey. 5.7 FURTHER MONITORING The transects searched in September/October 2017 (see Figure 3-2a BTM: Biodiversity survey transects searched in the Borefields Corridor area during the September/October 2017 survey, b and c) are to be resurveyed annually at the same or a similar time of the year when conditions are suitable for BTM. It is important to note that multi-season, in the context of occupancy modelling, does not mean monitoring multiple times a year in different seasons. It means that each modelling evet is undertaken independently of another (i.e. in a different period) and in this instance refers to survey events being undertaken annually.
