In August 2012, Southern Cross Goldfields Limited (SXG) engaged Bioscope Environmental to manage the environmental and statutory approvals process for the Marda Gold Project, which is located north of Southern Cross, Western Australia. The proposed Project includes open pit mining at three locations within the Marda region. Ore will be hauled to a processing plant to be developed at Marda Central, which is located within a proposed Conservation and Mining Reserve.
Services provided by Bioscope to date include drafting of a Conservation Management Plan, Mining Proposal and Mine Closure Plan. In addition, we have been assisting SXG in liaising with key Government departments in relation to conservation management and the environmental assessment process.
