Removal of contaminated material at the Old Mill site has ceased in the last year but is due to start again
Remediation of the Old Mill site, on the corner of Clarkson Drive and Griffin Esplanade, has been at a standstill, after the previous provider’s contract was finalised in April 2015.
A spokesperson for the Department of Natural Resources and Mines has advised that they continue to manage unallocated state land at Clarkson Drive, Rainbow Beach, where a former mineral sands processing mill once operated.
The Department is currently considering tenders for the removal of stockpiled material as part of the remediation of the site.
The Department is committed to the responsible and cost-effective future management of the site.
Temporary fencing has been erected for public safety and to keep the site secure.
