Saracen’s operations are located away from major towns thus all energy is generated on site by dedicated power stations which run on a mix of diesel and natural gas. The power station and generators are managed by Kalgoorlie Power Systems (KPS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pacific Energy Limited (ASX: PEA).
The majority of energy consumption within Saracen occurs at the Thunderbox and Carosue Dam operations which consist of mining operations (open pit and underground respectively) and processing plants.
Saracens Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) emissions are reported to the Clean Energy Regulator under Section 19 of the NGER Act 2007. Saracen also reports its emissions via the Carbon Disclosure Project (“CDP”)
Saracen continues to evaluate its environmental performance on an on-going basis and will continue to target proactive achievement of positive environmental outcomes.
