WA s Environmental Protection

Environmental Protection Authority Australian


Wiluna.jpgThe Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is expected to approve two uranium mines in WA’s Goldfields.

The mines are Toro Energy’s Wiluna operation and Vimy Resources’ Mulga Rock project.

Toro Energy said the EPA accepted its response to more than 2400 submissions as part of a three-month public review process that ended in February, according to The West Australian.

The company’s proposal to mine the Lake Maitland and Millipede deposits and create an ore haul road between an approved processing plant and Lake Maitland will also be considered by the EPA board.

Vimy Resources expects a similar approvals time frame from the EPA.

Julian Tapp, Vimy’s executive director, added the company’s 1100 public submissions were accepted by the EPA.

Cameco, which owns WA’s largest deposit at Yeelirrie, is also undergoing an environmental approvals process.

In 2008, the Barnett Government overturned a uranium mining ban, however no yellowcake has yet been produced at WA, due in part to continuing low prices since the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
