dc.description.abstractCompass Resources NL is proposing the development of the Browns Oxide mine, located in the Northern Territory approximately 65km south of Darwin and 7km north-west of Batchelor (Figure 1).The project is currently under construction. Compass Resources NL proposes to utilise open cut mining methods and a conventional hydrometallurgical process to extract approximately 3.9 million tonnes of oxide ore and produce copper, cobalt and nickel over a four year period (Public Environmental Report (PER) - Enesar Consulting Pty Ltd 2005). Mine sites have the potential to create or exacerbate mosquito breeding, from the creation of water dams, wetland filters, borrow pits, sediment traps, pit water discharge, waste water disposal, as well as the construction of roads and mine waste dumps. Mine sites also have the potential to introduce new mosquito species into the Northern Territory, such as the dengue mosquito Aedes aegypti from North Queensland, if equipment is sourced from this area. Therefore, all major development in the NT is required to consider mosquito breeding during the Environmental Assessment process, to ensure development does not create new mosquito breeding sites.en
