One of the challenges that a mine/consent manager faces is securing approvals for additional infrastructure that enable the mine to operate. This involves working closely with traditional landowners and stakeholders who have a legitimate need to understand how the proposed activity will take place and what the effects of this activity are.
South32 engaged Truescape to produce a video to support their Notice of Intent and Investment Application Request with the Land Council being their primary audience. The video visualised the extensive assessment and forethought that underpinned the proposed construction of a haul road between 2 Quarries as well as a bridge crossing.
It provided clear and consistent messages about the activities required to construct the haul road and bridge. It explained how access to key areas will be maintained, protected, avoided and the environmental impacts kept to a minimum. This video was well received by Land Council and the Mining Liaison Committee.
