Rescoping the Fingerboards mineral sands mine after the assessment by the then Minister for Planning in November 2021 found that the project would have unacceptable environmental effects. This was based on the Environmental Effects Statement and independent advisory committee hearing. The Minister's assessment validated the adopted position of council in relation to this project.

Any new proposal will be considered on its merits and based on the information available at the time and consistent with Councilís role and legislative responsibilities

Council has not met with Gippsland Critical Minerals about its work on providing additional information and more detailed processes to address issues raised in the Minister's assessment. Earth Resources Regulation is the primary regulator responsible for approval and regulation of mines.
