GEMCO Eastern Leases Project

Groote Eylandt Mining Company Pty Ltd

Groote Eylandt Mining Company Pty Ltd (GEMCO) proposes to develop and operate the GEMCO Eastern Leases Project, approximately 2km east of the existing GEMCO Mine at Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory.

The Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) decided that the GEMCO Eastern Leases Project required assessment under the Environmental Assessment Act at the level of Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

A delegate for the Australian Government Minister for the Environment decided that the GEMCO Eastern Leases Project (EPBC 2014/7228) was a controlled action and requires assessment and approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The project was assessed through an accredited assessment process.

The making of the Assessment Report and providing it to the Minister marks the completion of the examination of the final EIS by the NT EPA.
