Case Study: Seed collection for the nursery
Sandfire in collaboration with the Department of Forestry and Range Resources (DFFR) Ghanzi embarked on a seeds collection initiative for the nursery project on Friday the 21 August 2020. The Nursery project is a mine closure environmental management plan, which will ensure a sustainable habitat for indigenous flora from our Motheo Copper Mine site. A commitment to protecting the environment is central to the way we carry out our business. We are cognisant on the impact of our activities in the surrounding environment.
