Northern Extension to Yalyalup Minerals Sands Project

Closed 24 Apr 2024

Opened 17 Apr 2024


The proposal includes the expansion of a mineral sands mine including mine pits with dewatering to facilitate dry mining techniques. Existing processing facilities, services and support infrastructure will be utilised. Mine voids will be progressively backfilled with sand and clay tailings and rehabilitated to pre-disturbance landuse (i.e. pasture).

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.
