Environmental Impact Assessments

If your project requires an Environmental Impact Assessment, we’ll provide you with a range of solutions and monitoring to ensure that your project is given the very best chance of getting successful approvals.

Purpose of an Environmental Impact Assessment

An Environmental Impact Assessment is used to provide regulatory authorities with the information needed to evaluate a project’s potential environmental and ecological impacts.  An Environmental Impact Assessment considers the existing environmental values of the project site, the potential impacts on those values, and prescribes avoidance, mitigation, or offset measures.  The environmental impact assessment report is used as part of the complete approvals process to assess your mining or development project.

Environmental Impact Assessment Process

The general outline of the process required for an Environmental Impact Assessment is as follows:

  • Desktop assessment of existing environmental values
  • Field work to conduct flora and fauna surveys, or other relevant surveys including soil surveys
  • Assessment of the potential impacts of the project
  • Propose measures, to avoid, mitigate, and offset
  • Development of monitoring and reporting requirements
  • Management and monitoring
  • Environmental Compliance Auditing

  • Threatened flora and fauna
