Sandy Ridge Project – Environmental Scoping Document

Closed 14 Apr 2016

Opened 31 Mar 2016


Tellus Holdings Ltd proposes to construct and operate a dual kaolin (clay) mine and a waste facility, accepting Class IV (Secure Landfill) and a V (Intractable Landfill) waste from all of Australia, including waste from offshore Oil and Gas facilities. The waste would include amongst other things low level radioactive wastes and persistent organic pollutants. The proposal would receive on average 100 000 tonnes of waste per annum for approximately 25 years. The proposal is located 140 kilometres west north west of Kalgoorlie.

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.
