  • Minor amendments to the Development Application Boundary / Project Area to incorporate a portion of the Mountain Block Offset Area to facilitate required remediation works in accordance with the approved Biodiversity Offset Management Plan;
  • Minor amendment to conditions of DA 305-11-01 to provide the necessary flexibility for mining operations and the associated final landform outcomes to meet the site's rehabilitation objectives;
