Overview

Resource Group (WA) Pty Ltd proposes to construct a hard rock quarry at Lot 150 (792) Clydesdale Road, Grass valley. Holcim (Aust) Pty Ltd will be the eventual operators of the quarry. 

The proposal will extract, crush and screen approximately seventy thousand tonne (70,000tn) of hard rock per year with an approximate life of the quarry being 20-30.  

The proposal would require the clearing of 8.41 hectares (ha) of native vegetation and have a developmental envelope of 15.2 ha.  

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.
