In 2017, Iluka undertook significant stakeholder and community engagement as part of the South Capel Remediation Project (SCRP). Iluka consulted landowners and the community regarding a legacy issue caused by historical mineral sands mining and processing activities in Capel, Western Australia.
Iluka’s storage dams met regulatory and industry standards of the day and pose no risk to human health. However, in keeping with our commitment to environmental performance, we put a regulatory approved remediation plan in place to ensure the dams meet current regulations.
Iluka undertook extensive stakeholder engagements which included over 50 individual face to face conversations with landowners and multiple community information sessions. These were further supported by a dedicated community feedback line, fact sheets, online information and letters. To date, we have received good feedback from the community on our approach to engagement on this matter.
