Community health and safety is our top priority

The spread and impact of COVID19 has been staggering and we must all work together to slow it down and stamp it out. In line with government advice, we now have new arrangements for our work on the McPhillamys Gold Project. Our offices in Blayney will be unattended and our staff will be working from home, for the foreseeable future.

We’ll still continue with project activities wherever possible, and within the strict guidelines for social distancing and personal hygiene. And we’ll still be available to answer questions and discuss any aspect of the project, though we are avoiding face to face meetings wherever possible.

For any enquiries please call Chris Roach, Stakeholder Engagement Officer: 0416 745 699.

Referral to NSW Independent Planning Commission

Despite these new arrangements, we will continue to progress the McPhillamys Gold Project. Our focus is to complete the Response to Submissions (the formal response to the questions and issues raised during the EIS exhibition period). We expect to submit this to the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) in the middle of the year.

As anticipated, the project has also been referred to the Independent Planning Commission (IPC), by the NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, the Hon Rob Stokes, MP.

In referring the project to the IPC, the minister requested that the IPC hold a public hearing, paying particular attention to the DPIE Assessment Report; key issues raised during the public hearing; and any other relevant information. For more information on the IPC referral, please see the IPC website:

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.
