Jellinbah Group is very conscious of managing the impact of their mining operations on the environment.

Jellinbah Group's mines operate under an Environmental Authority which outlines the method of operation to ensure compliance with environmental regulations.

The mines have authority to discharge excess water from the lease, however, systems have been established to ensure rain water separation occurs which substantially reduces the requirement for water discharge into the river system.

Jellinbah Group's mines enjoy a good working relationship with its pastoral neighbours, thereby ensuring the future viability of the land post mining.
