On 28 November 2018, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to CEAL Pty Ltd (Multiquip) for failure to implement management strategies, such as fencing and due diligence inspection prior to ground disturbance, as outlined in the Aboriginal Heritage Management Plan (AHMP). This lead to potential harm to four know low significance Aboriginal sites/artefacts. Multiquip self-reported the non-compliance after undertaking an internal audit. Multiquip have since engaged an independent company to prepare an Aboriginal Site Harm Assessment and is currently undertaking measures to ensure continued compliance with the AHMP.
