NSW Department of Planning and Environment
On 16 February 2021, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Big Island Mining Pty Ltd (BIM) for failure to carry out the Dargues Gold Mine project generally in accordance with the Environmental Assessment and the conditions of consent.  During June and July 2020, BIM carted water for operational purposes to the Dargues Gold Mine project which was inconsistent with the approval and the Environment Assessment. BIM have now implemented measures, including the construction of Harvestable Rights Dams, to ensure they have adequate water supply on site for the project.
