Hastings acknowledges the importance of the surrounding environmental values to the TMWTJ People and the pastoral activities of Gifford Creek and Wanna stations. Specifically, the network of river and creek systems and associated ecosystems are of importance in this semi-arid environment.
The environmental values of the Project areas are constantly being evaluated against all planned activities during exploration, project feasibility and development, planned operations and closure phases.
As our business expands from mineral exploration to mining activities, our emphasis is currently on conducting a comprehensive environmental impact assessment, and developing systems, procedures and culture. In partnership with key government and community stakeholders, a thorough environmental impact assessment process will formalise the conclusion that the implementation of the proposed Project will not significantly impact the environment.
