3.5 Cumulative noise effects from multiple mines

Not all states have noise guidelines to effectively address and prevent the cumulative noise impacts from multiple mines, such that the individual mines need to understand and address this issue, in conjunction with their neighbouring mines.

In some regions there may be multiple mine sites which can affect the same residential receiver, albeit not at the same time. A good example is the village of Camberwell in the Hunter Valley, which has multiple separate approvals across several mining companies.
