About the report

Construction of the portal, retention pond and other headworks for the ERA Jabiluka Mine commenced in June 1998. The catchment of the Swift Creek, a major right bank tributary of the RAMSAR listed Magela Creek wetlands, will be the first catchment to be effected should any impact occur as a result of mining operations at the ERA Jabiluka Mine.
