Mining Footprints Glencore Xstrata Bulga Pilot 20150203


This data and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are represented here as originally supplied:

*Glencore have committed to assisting the DoW with their Bioregional Assessment Program.

*This assistance involves the provision of 'Mined Out' surfaces and polygons for both Underground and Open Cut operations across the business.

*The Bulga Complex was nominated as the pilot site, and the nature of the data provided for the Bulga Complex has been detailed in this presentation.

*The Bulga complex is made up of both underground and surface operations.

*The Underground operations extract coal using longwall methods, and target 5 primary seam horizons: Whybrow, Blakefield, Glen Munro, and Woodlands Hill.

*The Bulga Open Cut reserves are spilt into 2 broad categories, current approved mining reserves (Main and Bayswater Pits), and Bulga Optimisation Project (BOP) reserves (East and East Extension Pits).
