Public Environmental Review - Yoongarillup Mineral Sands Project

Closed 17 Nov 2014

Opened 20 Oct 2014

Overview

Doral Mineral Sands is proposing to develop a mineral sands mine at Yoongarillup, 17 km southeast of Busselton and 250 km south of Perth. The proposal involves conventional open cut, dry mining of mineral sands and processing of material mined through a primary concentration plant to produce a heavy mineral concentrate (HMC). The HMC will be transported for further processing at Doral’s existing processing plant at Picton to produce ilmenite, zircon and rutile.
