Overview

Energy and Minerals Australia Ltd (EMA) is proposing to develop the Mulga Rock Uranium Project. It will consist of a number of shallow open cut mines, containing commercial grades of uranium as well as other base metals, and the associated infrastructure required to produce and export up to 1,360 tonnes (3 million pounds) of uranium concentrate annually.

An Environmental Scoping Document has been prepared in accordance with Western Australian Government procedures and is released for public review.

The Environmental Scoping Document describes the proposal, identifies the preliminary key (most important) environmental factors or issues, outlines the work to be undertaken to predict the environmental impacts and identifies the relevant policy context.
