The Sino Iron project is situated in the Pilbara region, a landscape more than 2.5 billion years old. CITIC Pacific Mining has a commitment to implementing sustainability initiatives into our mining practices and ensuring our operations are environmentally responsible for the life of our project and beyond.
CITIC Pacific Mining is focused on fostering a sustainable and environmentally responsible culture within the company. This is achieved through environmental awareness programs, audits and inspections, submission of annual compliance reports, facilitating environmental licence to operate and completion of sustainability reporting. We also conduct Mesquite management works in consultation with the Pilbara Mesquite Management Committee.
The Sino Iron project was granted approval by the Minister for Environment in 2003.
In addition to the above initiatives, CITIC Pacific Mining works closely with the following government agencies:
- Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and Office of EPA
- Department of Environment Regulation
- Department of Mines and Petroleum
- Clean Energy Regulator
