Covalent Lithium Pty Ltd propose to make changes to their existing approved lithium mine. 

Changes include the construction and operation of a solar plant to provide renewable energy, changes to the tailings disposal method from a dry to a wet tailings, co-disposal of inert refinery waste generated from the Kwinana Lithium Refinery and modification of existing flora and vegetation and fauna exclusion areas. 

The revised proposal would include the additional disturbance of 56 hectares (ha). 

Why your views matter

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.
