COMMITMENT to environmentally sustainable practices brought rewards for three WA-based companies last week when the 12th Annual Golden Gecko Awards for Environmental Excellence were announced.
Barrick Gold of Australia received an award for its efficient solution to landfill management at the Lawlers minesite in the East Muchison, and a merit certificate for its research into the risk of heavy metals to mine site rehabilitation at the same gold mine.
Other recipients of major awards were: Apache Energy Limited, for its Victoria Oil Field development on the North West Shelf; and Beenup Consultative Group, for implementing an interactive community consultation process in rehabilitating the Beenup mineral sands mine.
Award certificates were also presented to Westfarmers Premier Coal, Woodside Energy Limited and Robe River Iron Associates for their efforts in moving towards better environmental performance.
