Item: mine pit exclusion zone - showing version 2

URI: http://environment.data.gov.au/def/ba/glossary/mine-pit-exclusion-zone

areas in the zone of potential hydrological change that are within or near open-cut mine pits, and where (i) modelled drawdowns are highly uncertain due to the very steep hydraulic gradients at the mine pit interface; (ii) changes in the drawdown are inevitable where the mine pit intersects the regional watertable; (iii) other factors, such as physical removal of a wetland or creek, may have a larger impact on a landscape class than the predicted decrease in groundwater level; and (iv) impacts are predominantly site-scale, assumed to be adequately addressed through existing development approval processes, and hence not the primary focus of bioregional assessments. The modelled estimates of drawdown in the mine pit exclusion zone are considered unreliable for use in the receptor impact modelling.
