Strategen facilitated approvals for the Boddington Gold Mine for more than 10 years. In 1997 Strategen prepared the environmental impact assessment documentation for approval under State legislation for the Extended Basement Operation. When new mining leases were acquired a revised proposal was prepared by Strategen and submitted to the Environmental Protection Authority and approved in 2002. Additional expansions in 2005 required further approval documentation revisions to be submitted under Western Australian environmental legislation. A mining proposal was then prepared for submission under mining legislation.
