    Case Study

    Xenith was engaged to undertake a full pre-feasibility study for a greenfield Australian mine. We supported the project with a fully integrated team drawing upon our extensive experience in approvals, environment, geology, mining, coal handling, plant preparation; power, and water supply. Our Environment and Approvals specialists addressed all statutory requirements including land use; local roads, contaminated land; surface water quality; hydrology and hydraulics (flooding and water management); waste management; ecology; air quality; noise and vibration; traffic and transport; cultural heritage; and social impact. The client was successful in obtaining all approvals and the mine has since been developed and is now in production.
