The Queensland department of natural resources and mines (DNRM) has granted the final heritage approval for Carbine Resources’ Mount Morgan gold copper project, southwest of Rockhampton.
The Heritage application is the first of three major approvals needed for the project to go ahead, making way for a heritage agreement to be created between Carbine and the department of heritage protection (DEHP) to develop the project.
Earlier this month the Queensland heritage council supported the development of Mount Morgan.
Carbine Resources manager director Tony James supported this latest milestone the project has achieved, which will bring it closer to development.
“Sincere congratulations must be passed on to the many stakeholders and professionals who were intimately involved with the heritage application,” he said.
“Those people, diligently working through this process, should be proud of what they have achieved for Mount Morgan and the Central Queensland community.”
The other two regulatory approvals still required for Mount Morgan are an Environmental Authority (EA) amendment and a Regional Interests Development approval (RIDA).
