Closed 7 Dec 2017

Opened 30 Nov 2017


Kidman Resources and SQM (KR&SQM) has requested a Change to Proposal through section 43A of the EP Act. KR&SQM proposes the following changes to the Earl Grey Lithium Project:

Modification of waste dump 3 to avoid an active mallee fowl mound;

Increase of cell 2 of the tailings storage facility to increase capacity; and

- Incorporation of the existing road network that will be used as part of the proposal into the proposal description.

Why We Are Consulting

Proposed changes to this proposal are being advertised to allow public comment before a decision on the requested s43A change is made.

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.
