Bellevue Gold Project - Underground Dewatering

Closed 10 Jun 2020

Opened 4 Jun 2020


The proposal is for the dewatering of up to 1 gigalitre per annum from the existing underground component of the Bellevue Gold Mine, to allow safe access for exploration drilling.  This will occur on mining leases M36/24 and M36/25, 40km NW of Leinster.

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.
