After four years of planning, the environmental impact statement for a proposed gold mine between Bathurst and Blayney is open for public inspection.
The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) will accept submissions on the EIS for the McPhillamy's Gold Project until October 24.
Regis Resources special projects manager Tony McPaul said Regis had worked closely with local landholders and councils to develop the final location, site layout and operational arrangements for the project.
"And we'll keep listening and refining our plans, wherever practicable, as the process continues."
Mr McPaul said Regis would hold another series of community open days at the Blayney Community Centre on October 15 and 16 to coincide with the formal exhibition period.
There will also be a community information session run by the NSW DPIE on September 26 at the Blayney Community Centre.
Belubula Headwaters Protection Group president Dan Sutton said the release of the EIS was great news for the community.
"This is the final report from all of Regis' consultants in terms of what it is that they intend to do, what they expect the impacts to be and how they expect to manage and mitigate those impacts," he said.
Documents can be viewed on the DPIE website: https://www.planningportal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects/project/9821.
Hard copies can be inspected at the Bathurst, Blayney Shire, Cabonne and Lithgow council offices as well as a copy on a USB stick, on request, from the Regis office on Adelaide Street, Blayney.
