Official Caution issued to Cadia Holding Pty Ltd (MP06_0295, Cabonne Shire LGA)

27 February 2020

On 27 February 2020, the Department issued an Official Caution to Cadia Holdings Pty Ltd for failing to implement the Water Management Plan (WMP) for the Cadia East Project. On 14 November 2019, the mine continued to use water from the Cadiangullong Dam in ore processing activities, despite dam storage levels falling to 12% capacity (a trigger point in their WMP to cease use for ore processing activities). The breach was self-reported by the mine and measures have been implemented to prevent future reoccurrences.
