Penalty Notice issued to Evolution Mining (Cowal) Pty Ltd (Cowal Gold Operations, PA 14/98, Bland Shire Council LGA)

On 16 August 2018, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Evolution Mining (Cowal) Pty Ltd (Evolution) for failure to comply with the Transport of Hazardous Materials Study (THMS) required under Project Approval.

The investigation established that Evolution was using transport routes to deliver hazardous materials that were not approved by the THMS in addition to exceeding the quantities approved by the THMS. Transport routes and quantities of materials have been assessed and approved under the THMS to ensure community safety and minimise potential impact to the surrounding land uses.  The breach was identified by Evolution and reported to the Department. Evolution have now implemented processes to ensure all employees and contractors adhere to the THMS.
