Closed 7 Apr 2021

Opened 29 Mar 2021

Overview

The proposal is for above and below water table mining and beneficiation of vanadium ore to produce an enriched vanadium-iron concentrate. The proposal is located 40 km south-southeast of Meekatharra and includes the development of open mine pits and associated infrastructure including but not limited to access roads, accommodation camp, a crushing, milling, flotation, and magnetic separation (beneficiation) plant, waste rock and tailings storage, and support infrastructure.

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.
