dc.description.abstractWestern Desert Resources Limited (WDRL) proposes to construct and operate an iron ore mine within the Roper Bar Iron Ore Province, located in the Gulf Region of the Northern Territory, 50 km inland from the Gulf of Carpentaria at its closest point. Mine sites have the potential to create or exacerbate mosquito breeding. 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. As part of the environmental process, all major developments in the NT are required to consider mosquitoes during the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements or Public Environmental Reports, to ensure new development does not create new mosquito breeding sites, and also to protect the health of workers. Medical Entomology, of the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Northern Territory Department of Health (DOH) was subsequently commissioned by EcOz Environmental Services to conduct a Biting Insect Assessment of the mine site. The biting insect assessment was to include monthly trapping over a 12 month period, and a field investigation to identify actual or potential mosquito breeding sites.en
