Opened 5 Feb 2021

Overview

Focus Minerals Ltd propose a small scale operation limited in duration for crushing and screening waste rock material from an existing waste rock dump at the Lancefield Gold Mine area.  The proposal is located approximately 250 kilometres north east of Kalgoorlie. 

There will be approximately 1.5 hectares of clearing for a water pipeline and widening access tracks to support the mobile crushing and screening machinery.

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.
