Another Milestone for McPhillamys Gold Project

Regis Resources has taken the next step in the assessment process for the McPhillamys Gold Project, lodging a Project Amendment Report with the NSW Government, on 4 September 2020.

The Amendment Report and accompanying Submissions Report set out our response to the issues raised by the community and government agencies, following the public exhibition of the proposal last year.

We’ve looked at all the feedback and worked with neighbours and other stakeholders to come up with a number of changes which will further reduce environmental and community impacts.

These include:

  • Moving the site access further east to improve traffic flow and safety;
  • a new mine and waste rock emplacement schedule to further reduce noise impacts; and
  • improvements to the site layout to protect potential heritage items and trees, and reduce the visual impact of the project.

The Amendment Report will now be assessed by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) before being determined by the NSW Independent Planning Commission (IPC).

The Amendment Report and the Submissions Report are available at the following link:

About the project

The McPhillamys Gold Project is located in the Blayney - Kings Plains district of Central West New South Wales, approximately 8 kilometres from the town of Blayney. The Blayney – Kings Plains district has been the subject of alluvial and hard rock mining since the mid to late 19th century with sporadic exploration for gold and base metals over various exploration licences since the 1960s.

McPhillamys, if developed would consist of a large scale open cut gold mining operation that has a current mine life of approximately ten years. Regis’ Board anticipates making a decision on the development of McPhillamys following assessment of the Environmental Impact Statement (including the Social Impact Assessment), obtaining of regulatory approvals and completion of the Definitive Feasibility Study.
