Wanbao Mining's Myanmar Copper Company enhances environmental monitoring in mining area


Myanmar Copper Company recently conducted field survey of environmental monitoring spots in the project area and surrounding communities.

Targets of the survey included mountain temples, village wells and temples and under-bridge stagnant pools closest to the project, and environmental monitoring spots and groundwater monitoring holes in the project area. Subjects of the survey included blasting vibration, noise, air quality (PM2.5, PM10, TSP, SO2 and NO2), water quality and dustfall. The testing results found no obvious anomaly at any of the spots.

Wanbao Mining's Myanmar Copper Company provided suggestions regarding problems discovered in the survey and was basically satisfied with the current environmental monitoring work. It demanded the HSE Department to intensify monitoring and communication with concerned communities in the endeavor to minimize the project's impacts on surrounding communities.
