Sheffield Thunderbird update
Written on the 9 February 2018
Sheffield has commenced Government approved site works (preliminary works for water, roads, accommodation units) at Thunderbird, paving the way for start of the two-year construction task.
GR Engineering Services (GRES) has been appointed as preferred Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) tenderer for the processing plant and facilities.
Sheffield is responsible for other infrastructure such as Port of Derby storate facilities and refurbishment of ship loader, trailings storage, bore field, potable and waste water treatment.
NATIVE TITLE PROCESS CONTINUES...
Sheffield continues working through the Native Title process, which is subject to a decision of the Full Federal Court, whereby the Court upheld an appeal made by the Mount Jowlaenga Polygon #2 claimant group.
The Court found (December 2017) that good faith obligations continue to apply after a future act determination application (FADA) has been lodged.
The consequence of this interpretation of the law means that the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) must now consider the good faith decision including the period after Sheffield lodged the FADA, in October 2016.
