   2006 BANKSIA MINERALS AWARD

Sustainable Mining at Tiwest Cooljarloo, Tiwest, WA

Tiwest has deployed significant resources to achieve excellent and continually improving environmental performance at Cooljarloo Mine. The sustainable management of clay slimes, the achievement of high quality rehabilitation on constructed landforms, and the management of water abstraction to protect ground-water dependent vegetation are all noteworthy.   Tiwest has forged strong partnerships with key stakeholders to secure enduring regional benefits including an 11 year partnership with the Billinue Aboriginal Corporation who provide local provenance seed for mine-site rehabilitation. Tiwest has also supported the CALM Western Shield fox baiting programme for the past 6 years enabling the release of locally extinct Woylies, Tammar Wallabies and Quenda into nearby Nambung National Park.   The Nightstalk Marsupial spotlighting programme with the Perth Zoo has engaged the local community and workforce in fauna conservation. Partnerships with local schools have provided environmental education to children and eliminated historical regional legacies such un-rehabilitated Shire borrow pits.
