Diving deep into environmental compliance

Lihir’s environmental divers

During FY19 our Lihirian environmental divers renewed their certifications to continue to support coral reef monitoring at our Lihir mine. Their work is part of our comprehensive Environmental Monitoring and Measurement programme.

The divers completed their advanced diver and rescue training and underwent specialised medical checks.

The local dive programme is a simple and effective way to monitor coral health in the ocean around Lihir, where the divers complete essential compliance tasks.

The divers, who have more than 70 years’ experience among them at our Lihir operations, have extensive local knowledge and do quarterly 12-metre dives to check sediment loads and assess coral health.

Our divers know the waters very well and are excited to be back playing their essential role. They are also training other Lihirian divers who are working in our business.
