Subterranean Ecology has been a consistent provider of troglofauna and stygofauna services to Atlas Iron Limited including Atlas’s flagship mine site at Pardoo and multiple other projects including Abydos, Mount Webber, Mount Dove and McPhee Creek. This rapidly growing Western Australian miner is targeting production of 12 Mtpa by end of 2012 and 22 Mtpa from North Pilbara alone by 2015.
Pardoo DSO Project
Subterranean Ecology was commissioned by Atlas Iron to survey troglofauna at the Pardoo project site in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. This assessment followed immediately after the EPAs recommendation that Rio Tinto’s Pannawonica Expansion Project should not be approved because of the risk to troglofauna.
