Huon Gulf Ultratrace Analysis Project
Wafi-Golpu Joint Venture (WGJV) are currently undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to determine the suitability of deep sea tailings placement (DSTP) as the tailings management option for the Wafi-Golpu copper/gold mine project (Apte et al., 2018).
The field study applied ecogenomics techniques to measure any changes in biodiversity... more in the tailings/sediment mixtures. Ecogenomics techniques were applied to assess the biodiversity of benthic organisms associated with the natural sediment and measure changes in the community structure in the tailings/sediment mixtures deployed at deep and shallow locations. less
