TNG LTD MOUNT PEAKE PROJECT Page | 30 4.5. OBJECTIVES Biodiversity management objectives are detailed in Table 4-4 below. Table 4-4: Biodiversity management objectives Source of Impact Management Objectives Clearing of Native Vegetation Where practicable, minimise clearing to that which is absolutely essential. Minimise, and avoid where practicable, clearing within important fauna and flora habitat areas. Reinstate vegetation as soon as practicable. Assess impacts of mine site activities on the Greater Bilby, Black-footed Rock Wallaby, Brush-tailed Mulgara and GSP populations in the context of the monitoring programs developed for each of these species. Habitat Fragmentation Where practicable, minimise clearing to that which is absolutely essential. Reduce edge effects by employing best management practices. Reinstate habitat and reconnect habitat fragments as soon as practicable to reduce impacts to flora and fauna. Assess impacts of mine site activities on the Greater Bilby, Black-footed Rock Wallaby, Brush-tailed Mulgara and GSP populations in the context of the monitoring programs developed for each of these species. Altered hydrology Avoid the creation of a drainage shadow on the outwash (northern side) of the haul/access road. Avoid and assess impacts to the GSP as a result of altered surface water flow caused by mine site activities. Initiate monitoring as per the monitoring program for GSP Water quality impacts Minimise impacts to surface water quality from mine site activities, mine infrastructure, mine landforms and stockpiles. Avoid impacts of hydrocarbons on localized and endemic species such as the GSP. Ensure appropriate and prompt clean-up of any spills to minimize impacts to surface water quality. Erosion and Sedimentation Contain water and sediment within the road construction corridor. Maintain surface water flows that reduce the potential for erosion and sedimentation. Soil compaction Rehabilitate as per the Mine Closure Plan to achieve a soil compaction level similar undisturbed sites of the same soil, drainage and topographical setting Lowering or contamination of the water table Assess impacts to groundwater dependent ecosystem indicator species. Waste material - industrial Minimise the chances of traffic accidents or fauna strikes by mine site vehicles. Avoid soil, surface water and groundwater contamination from industrial waste. Ensure appropriate and prompt clean-up of any spills to minimize impacts to surface water quality. Waste material - domestic Prevent fauna populations utilizing the landfill or waste receptacles as food sources. Prevent egress of windblown rubbish from the landfill site.
