Risk Rating – E – No Regulations, Other Management Mechanisms No significant point source air emissions are expected from activities at Wallaby. There is no need to add specific conditions to the permit regarding emissions from point sources into the air or the monitoring of these emissions. OSCs were included in the permit to ensure proper management of hypersaline water discharges into Lake Carey.

Conditions were included in the license to minimize the environmental impacts on Lake Carey, including impacts on riparian vegetation communities and micro-fauna. Risk assessment — E — no regulation, other management mechanisms No significant point source soil emissions are expected from the operations at Wallaby. No specific conditions relating to point source emissions to land or the monitoring of these emissions are required to be added to the licence.

Risk assessment — E — no regulation, other control mechanisms. There will be no point source emissions to groundwater during the operation of the dewatering infrastructure or landfill. No specific conditions regarding point source emissions to groundwater or monitoring of such emissions are required to be added to the permit. Risk assessment— E — no regulation, other management mechanisms Fugitive dust emissions can damage surrounding vegetation and affect human health.

Risk assessment- E - no regulations, other management mechanisms No odor emissions are expected during the operation of the dewatering infrastructure. Risk rating- E - no regulation, other management mechanisms Noise emissions will be generated by the water discharge pumps. L3.1 OSC General monitoring conditions are included in the license to support monitoring of emissions to surface water.

L3.6 OSC Monitoring of inputs or outputs is not required to ensure efficient operation of the infrastructure, and therefore no specific conditions regarding monitoring of inputs or outputs are required in the permit. L3.9 OSC Monitoring of meteorological conditions is not required to ensure adequate management of drainage infrastructure. L4 NSC An improvement plan is included in the license to develop the Hypersaline Management Plan Version 3 and to increase awareness of the impacts of mine drainage discharge into Lake Carey.
