The Bulga Complex currently manages approximately 5,500 hectares of land. Non-mining areas include cattle grazing areas, vineyards, olive groves, native bushland and a conservation area.
The overall objective is to coordinate sustainable land and biodiversity management practices across our properties. The key objectives of our land management activities include:
- Maintaining the rural character and landscape amenity of the area
- Operating our properties in a manner which supports the local rural industries
- Weed and feral animal control
- Careful grazing management
- Sediment and erosion control
- Promoting natural regeneration to enhance biodiversity
Biodiversity activities at the Bulga Complex include rehabilitating areas disturbed by mining activities; restoring previously grazed farming land; native vegetation seed collection and propagation; recreating corridors of natural vegetation to encourage plant and animal habitats; and flora and fauna monitoring.
