Greenbushes Lithium Mine Expansion - Change to Proposal

Closed 10 Feb 2019

Opened 1 Feb 2019


Talison Lithium Australia Pty Ltd (Talison) is proposing to expand the existing Greenbushes Lithium Mine that has been operated for over 30 years, to increase the production of spodumene ore and lithium mineral concentrate from the operation. This proposal is an expansion of the existing mining operation and has not previously been assessed by the EPA.

The mine is located in the South West of Western Australia, immediately south of the town of Greenbushes, approximately 250 km south east of Perth, Western Australia.

Talison are proposing to change their linear infrastructure through a section 43a application. Talisons are proposing to change the mine haulage route to the site and have included a new mine access road and tailings retreatment plant access road to the expansion. The changes proposed would not increase clearing from that proposed in the existing expansion.

Why We Are Consulting

Due to interest in this proposal, the proposed changes are being advertised to allow public comment before a decision on the requested s43A change is made.
