Bravus response to Coordinator-General's investigation confirming adequacy of sediment control measures

“We have received the investigation results from the Coordinator General which has confirmed the adequacy of the erosion and sediment control measures in place at Carmichael Project sites.

“The regulator conducted an investigation following allegations made by anti-coal activists, Environmental Justice Australia and Mackay Conservation Group. This was the latest tactic in a decade-long misinformation campaign by the anti-fossil fuel movement in Australia to undermine the reputation of the Carmichael Project and halt or delay its construction.

“As part of the investigation the Coordinator Generator provided a number of recommendations and we will put these measures in place as suggested.

“Bravus takes our environmental obligations seriously and we have erosion and sediment control measures in place at our construction sites to ensure we comply with our environmental approvals for daily operations and extreme weather events. 

“The Carmichael Project has some of the strictest environmental conditions ever imposed on a mining project in Australia.

“Bravus holds over 100 environmental approvals, and manages thousands of conditions and commitments to the environment.

“Our environmental plans and strategies were prepared by experts with many of these plans also reviewed by third-party specialists.”
