Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The samples measured carbon disulphide levels at their various mining operations and the results showed that:

· the maximum carbon disulphide level measured was 15 ppm in the mixing section;

· only two readings were above 10 ppm;

· only 20 readings were at or above 5 ppm and most of these were recorded as being in the “mixing section”; and

· the average concentration of atmospheric carbon disulphide from 133 samples taken in the mixing section was less than 2.5 ppm.

Western Mining submitted atmospheric monitoring data from Olympic Dam Operations. No information was supplied on the number of samples. All samples were instantaneous readings.
