Opened 30 Aug 2021


The proposal is to develop an additional small satellite nickel deposit at New Morning.   The project is located within the Shire of Kondinin, approximately 80 kilometres east of Hyden.  

The proposal includes development of the New Morning deposit, waste dump, ROM pad, transport and infrastructure corridors. 

The proposal would require a maximum clearing extent of 29 hectares of native vegetation within a 64.5-hectare development envelope.  

The proposed life of mine is 2- 3 years.

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.
