Opened 21 Nov 2018


The Munglinup Graphite Project is located in the South Coast region of Western Australia, approximately 105km west of Esperance, 85km east of Ravensthorpe and 4km north on Munglinup.

MRC Graphite Pty Ltd propose to extract graphite from up to six open pits. The proposal will also include a processing plant, tailings storage facility, waste rock landforms, and associated infrastructure.

The proposal would include a total disturbance of 350 hectares.

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.
