Sanjiv Ridge Project - Stage 2

Closed 4 Oct 2021

Opened 28 Sep 2021


Atlas Iron Pty Ltd is proposing to develop and operate Stage 2 of the Sanjiv Ridge Project, a satellite operation to Stage 1, which will involve the above water table mining of approximately 10 million tonnes (Mt) of iron ore from the Glen Herring deposit which is located on an adjacent range 3 km west of Stage 1 and approximately 241 km south-east of Port Hedland in the Shire of East Pilbara. 

The proposal will consist of three new pits, four waste rock dumps and a 4 km haul road connecting to Stage 1, where ore will be hauled for processing.  The proposal includes clearing of up to 125 ha of vegetation within a Development Envelope of 246 ha.  No additional groundwater abstraction is required, as water for activities such as dust suppression will be supplied from Stage 1 using existing infrastructure. 

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.
