For some topics, Explanatory Notes have been written to supplement the Independent Expert Scientific Committee on Coal Seam Gas and Large Coal Mining Development’s Information Guidelines, providing tailored guidance and up-to-date robust scientific methodologies and tools for specific components of environmental impact assessments on coal seam gas and large coal mining developments.
The Information Guidelines Explanatory Note - Characterisation and modelling of geological fault zones provides a range of approaches available to proponents to determine, at the highest level, the role faults may play in impeding or propagating pressure and groundwater flow impacts from proposed project developments.
The summary guide provides a short, simplified summary of the Explanatory Note and includes various approaches, methods and tools available to assess the risks posed by geological faults from coal resource development. The summary guide also presents several recommendations outlined in the Explanatory Note.
