Throughout the lifecycle of a mining project, government approval is required at each stage, as well as ongoing community consultation.
A Statutory Approval is any approval, licence, consent or authorisation granted by a competent authority at any sphere of government in respect of or relating to a project or development.
As per Newcrest’s code of conduct, maintaining a sound professional relationship with all levels of government is an essential part of our ability to do business. We are committed to working with all levels of government and their agencies and employees in an honest, transparent and ethical manner.
Our approvals include statutory approvals (including the Cadia East Project Approval and Cadia East Environmental Assessment), licences and permits and current modifications applications to the Cadia East Project Approval.
