The York Potash Project is finally on it's way, with cash in the bank (thanks to Ms Gina Rinehart) the preparatory works to be agreed with NYMNPA and environmental mitigation measures are at the forefront of the Project's construction programme:
The Construction Method Statement (CMS) can be found here:
NMC (North Midland Construction) will be overseeing the works : http://www.northmid.co.uk/
Following progress on the works traffic management plan the CMS is inclusive on Site Preparation Works: General Site Clearance, Earthworks, Surface Water Management, Internal Access Road & Traffic Managment with briefs on environmental, health & safety, materials handling and storage including a Risk Assessment & Method Statements (RAMS).
With NYMNPA approval & acceptance of the Phase 2 plan, these works are expected to start April 2017 through to September 2017.
"Sirius Minerals acknowledges that the Phase 2 Works, as described, would constitute ‘Commencement of Development’, as defined in planning permission NYM/2014/0676/MEIA, and ‘Commencement of Construction, as defined in the Section 106 Agreement."
That's a lot of trees ... ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcXT1clXc04
Meanwhile, further investigatory works are continuing with a drilling rig expected on site next week to prove up the last phew feet for shaft sinkers AMC who should arrive on site following the Phase 2 works as detailed above.
So, soft hats off ... and hard hats on.
Distance is futile ;-))
Ah, so ...
One fine day ;-)
