In the past 5 years, Resource Strategies has gained approval for eight state significant projects and over twenty modifications in NSW.

Over this time period Resource Strategies has also obtained approvals for BHP Billiton Iron Ore’s significant mine expansions in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia.

Resource Strategies has a strong history of industry leadership in project assessment.  In New South Wales, Resource Strategies has been involved in the grant of the first Gateway Certificate, the first mining project determined under the State Significant Development provisions, the first mining project to have a Planning Assessment Commission public hearing, the first project to have an Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel and the first project approved under the previous Part 3A system.  Resource Strategies was also involved in mine closure and mining lease relinquishment at the closed Timbarra Gold Mine.

Resources Strategies is currently preparing applications for mining expansions in the coal, gold, mineral sands and iron ore sectors.

Proven Track Record |

Resource Strategies has a track record of achieving successful approvals for large and complex projects. We have a demonstrated ability to obtain required approvals within operational timing constraints and budgets. We focus on delivering maximum project value through the approvals process, whilst maintaining a level of approvals and environmental risk that is appropriate for the client and within statutory and policy frameworks.

Strategic Approach |

We work closely with our clients to identify key environmental risks to project value and approval timing. Resource Strategies provides advice on project design, approval strategies and stakeholder engagement to assist clients to optimise their project value within the statutory and policy framework set by the relevant government authorities. Resource Strategies adopts an integrated strategic approach with each client to manage the environmental approval process from scoping to project delivery.

Professional Negotiation |

Successful management of stakeholder issues involves an experienced understanding of the interrelationships between technical, social and regulatory interfaces. We can assist clients to resolve stakeholder issues by developing negotiation strategies and facilitating access to key stakeholders.

Broad Experience |

Our staff are familiar with issues associated with coal, metalliferous and mineral sands mining and a variety of open cut and underground methods. Resource Strategies also coordinates approvals for mining related infrastructure, including ports, electricity transmission lines and water and gas pipelines.
