On 18 February 2020, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice and two $6,000 Penalty Notices to Heron Resources Limited (Heron) in relation to their Woodlawn Mine Project. The $15,000 Penalty Notice was issued for the construction of the box cut (the entry point to the underground mine) and a waste rock storage area in locations which were not consistent with the development consent. A further two $6,000 Penalty Notices were issued to Heron for the construction of buildings on the site without having first obtained construction and occupation certificates as required under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Heron is currently consulting with the Department and local council to resolve the breaches.
