No infrastructure or new roads are required to access the site and sand and gravel. Surface water is over 500 Metres away and no dewatering of the pit is expected. No vegetation, top or subsoil will need to be removed to access resource. No fuel tanks will be stored on site. All Health and Safety rules will be adhered to. Any spills will be cleaned up to acceptable standard and reported to the appropriate authority.
