Flora and Fauna Monitoring at Prominent Hill
EBS undertakes bi-annual flora and fauna monitoring at the Prominent Hill mine to monitor the possible impacts on flora and fauna species as a result of mining operations and associated activities. EBS has set up general monitoring sites for flora and fauna monitoring as well as targeted monitoring for one bird species of national conservation significance and one bird species of state conservation significance.
Flora monitoring methodologies utilised by EBS include quadrat sampling (two sizes) and Jessop transects. The fauna monitoring techniques used by EBS include a range of pitfall trapping, Elliott trapping, cage trapping, active searching and spotlighting. Data is collated, analysed and interpreted after each sampling event. Over time, the results may influence the management of the mine and aid in reducing any long-term impacts on fauna species in the area.
