Opened 14 Dec 2018


Technology Metals Australia are looking to develop the Gabanintha Vanadium Project. 

The Gabanintha Vanadium Project is located within WA’s Mid-West region, approximately 615 km north-east of Perth and 40 km south-east of Meekatharra, adjacent to the Meekatharra-Sandstone Road.  

The proposal includes development of multiple vanadium deposits (Far North, North, and Central) via open pit mining.  Supporting infrastructure for the Project includes waste rock landforms (WRLs), mineralised waste stockpile, processing plant, run of mine, integrated waste landform (incorporating tailings storage facility), calcine storage area, mine dewatering infrastructure, workshops, accommodation camp, borefields and associated infrastructure administration buildings and roads.  

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.
