CopperString Project Terrestrial ecology EIS and SEIS
Project for RLMS and CopperString Pty Ltd. November 2010 and November 2011.
BAAM (in collaboration with 3d environmental) undertook a technical assessment of the terrestrial ecological values associated with development of the proposed CopperString Project, located in northern Queensland, and a subsequent assessment of potential ecological impacts from proposed activities and associated management measures. The report brings together relevant existing information regarding the terrestrial ecology of the study area and surrounds, and provides a foundation for project planning to achieve ecological sustainability.
The SEIS report also considered changes made to the Project design subsequent to the submission of the EIS, including realignments and additional infrastructure components. Technical contributions were also made to a Biodiversity Offset Strategy for the Project, which was accepted by the Commonwealth SEWPaC along with the SEIS assessment report.
