Closed 29 Jul 2013

Opened 23 Jul 2013


BC Iron Limited proposes to develop the Nullagine Iron Ore Extension Project. The proposal involves an extension of mining operations into two new mining areas, including Bonnie East and Warrigal North mesas. The proposal will comprise an expected iron ore resource of approximately 22 million tonnes which will extend the mine life by up to 5 years.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
