Mulga Rock Uranium Project

Closed 21 Aug 2013

Opened 14 Aug 2013

Overview

Energy and Minerals Australia Limited proposes to develop the Mulga Rock Uranium project. The Mulga Rock Uranium project is located in the Shire of Menzies, 240 km east‐north‐east of Kalgoorlie, on the western flank of the Great Victoria Desert.

The proposal includes the development of a processing plant, waste rock dumps, tailings storage facilities, roads, accommodation and an airstrip. Mining is proposed to take place through open pit methods in four separate deposits – Princess, Ambassador, Emperor and Shogun. The ore would be processed onsite over a period of approximately 15 years. Uranium oxide concentrate would be shipped through either the Port of Darwin or Port Adelaide.

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 Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
