J Quarry Haul Road Realignment Project


Groote Eylandt Mining Company Pty Ltd (GEMCO) is proposing to construct a haul road within a realigned corridor, and construct associated access tracks to connect a future mining area known as J Quarry with existing mining areas on Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The haul road would include a single span bridge across the Emerald River and a culvert crossing of an ephemeral tributary (known as the Southern Tributary). The total clearing footprint would be 24 hectares.
