On Thursday 2nd July there was an environmental incident at Clarence Colliery.
The incident involved the overflow of material from a holding cell in the reject emplacement area. All relevant agencies and authorities were notified and Centennial has continued to work with these bodies.
The priority continues to be minimising the impact to the environment and Centennial is achieving this through its management of the incident.
The twenty-two (22) sediment fences erected between the mine site and the Wollangambe River continue to be inspected daily, to prevent the movement of any further material.
