St Ives Gold Mine – The Beyond 2018 Project

Closed 11 Jan 2017

Opened 5 Jan 2017


St Ives Gold Mining Company Pty Limited proposes to expand the existing open-cut and underground gold mining developments with 2,061 hectares (ha) of disturbance. The proposal is located in Lake Lefroy approximately 20 kilometres south east of Kambalda (Shire of Coolgardie).

The revised proposal would include an additional disturbance of 5000 ha:

  • additional lake based disturbance of up to 2,000 ha; and
  • additional land based disturbance of up to 3,000 ha.

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.
