Wuudagu Bauxite Project

Closed 26 Jan 2020

Opened 20 Jan 2020

Overview

Valperlon Bulk Commodities Pty Ltd propose to develop a bauxite mine located approximately 15 km west of the town of Kalumburu in the Kimberly.

 The proposal involves the mining of bauxite in the Kimberley and the use of a conveyor to transport processed ore to a barge-loading facility in Napier Broome Sound, and then trans-shipping of ore.

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.
