The Bulga Optimisation Project is a proposed expansion of the Bulga coal mine, along with related infrastructure construction such as a noise and visual bunds and road works.
OzArk EHM completed the survey and test excavation required to assess the scientific values present within a 4,873 ha area proposed for impact by the Bulga Optimisation Project.
This project involved over 343 person days to complete the survey and a further two weeks of test excavation, including the excavation of nearly 200 test pits.
OzArk EHM was involved with all aspects of assessing the scientific values of the study area from field work through to working with a large number of Aboriginal stakeholders both in the field as well as at meetings and site visits. This project demonstrates OzArk EHM’s ability to work with a large number of Aboriginal stakeholders and to coordinate the field assessment of a project covering a large and diverse topographic area.
