The project, named Quattro, has four main components including an extension to Martha Open Pit; a new, smaller open pit to the west of the processing plant; a new tailings storage area next to the current area, and a new rock storage area.

Waihi Community Forum 

The Forum is responsible for administering parts of Newmont’s resource consent as described in condition 61 (relating to property purchases). On top of this there are some voluntary arrangements that the Forum administer for Newmont including a community grant.

The Waihi Community Forum was set up in 2012 in response to a voluntary policy offered by Newmont in response to the communities requests to respond to the adverse effects of its proposals for mining beneath Waihi East. Since then the policy under which the Forum was established has been revoked and the Forums roles have changed as described above.

For more information about the Forum and its responsibilities please visit their website: www.waihicommunityforum.co.nz
