Overview

Image Resources NL is seeking to develop a mineral sands project, located at Nambung, approximately 170 kilometres (km) north of Perth and 18 km east of Cervantes, in the Wheatbelt region of WA. The proposal includes the progressive development of mine pits, processing facilities, groundwater bores and water management infrastructure, temporary waste dumps, solar drying ponds and associated infrastructure. 

The proposal would require the clearing of up 320 hectares of native vegetation.

Why we are consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

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