About the document
The Environmental Requirements for the Ranger uranium mine set out the Commonwealth's environmental protection conditions with which the company must comply. These are conditions of the Authority issued under s41 of the Atomic Energy Act 1953 and also reflect the Commonwealth's role in the Alligator Rivers Region under the Environment Protection (Alligator Rivers Region) Act 1978. The operational procedures and practices, and environmental standards, guidelines, codes, regulations or limits relevant to meeting these conditions are set out in Northern Territory legislation and the Ranger General Authorisation established under the Uranium Mining (Environment Control) Act 1979 (NT) (repealed), and continued under the Mining Management Act 2001.
