Mining, Exploration and Geoscience

Mining, Exploration and Geoscience is acutely aware of the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on industry, and the increased risk to operations and other activity given the current situation in NSW.

The COVID-19 situation in NSW is dynamic. MEG will continue to support industry to navigate COVID-19 restrictions during this uncertain time.

MEG has reviewed the response activities policy and an updated policy now applies. MEG has also developed a fact sheet to support industry, including what to do in the event of a positive COVID-19 case at an exploration or mine site.

MEG will continue to provide advice to industry in relation to changing public health orders as the situation unfolds.
