Chalice Mining (CHN) will enter the New Year on a high after receiving WA Government approval for low impact drilling at its Julimar Project.

The WA State Government has approved the Stage 2 Conservation Management Plan (CMP) for drilling at the project’s Hartog and Baudin targets.

The plan sets out strict environmental requirements for drilling at the priority targets, located within the Julimar State Forest.

The CMP is designed to minimise disturbance and environmental impact.

Requirements under the plan include no mechanised clearing of vegetation and a
maximum operational footprint of 4.4 hectares across the 2000-hectare Hartog-Baudin target area.

“Chalice has conducted extensive flora and fauna surveys covering an area of around 5,700 hectares to inform the company’s drilling program,” the company said.

“A key condition of the CMP includes monitoring by qualified fauna observers throughout the program to ensure there is no direct impact to wildlife.”

Cultural surveys have confirmed that no cultural heritage sites are affected by the drilling program.

On the market today, Chalice was up 3.21 per cent and is trading at $9.01 per share at 1:40 pm AEDT.
