In Western Australia, the environmental impacts associated with mining and processing are managed under the Western Australian Mining Act and the Environmental Protection Act. The key requirements are an approved Mining Proposal and Mine Closure Plan, Operating Licence.

Gold mining has the potential to cause environmental impacts. Bardoc aims to manage its operations to minimise impacts and, when mining and processing is complete, to leave sites in a safe and stable condition.

Bardoc assesses the inherent environmental risk for each phase of the project. The assessment includes the consequences and the likelihood to provide a risk ranking. After adoption of controls the residual risk is assessed.
