Public Environmental Review

Mulga Rock Uranium Project - Public Environmental Review

Public Review Period - 14 December 2015 to 8 March 2016 (Submissions have now closed)

Vimy Resources Limited is proposing to develop the Mulga Rock Uranium Project (MRUP) which is located 240 km east-north-east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.  The project will involve shallow open pit mining of four poly-metallic deposits with commercial grades of uranium. The project has a life of mine of 16 years and will produce 1,360t of uranium oxide concentrate annually.

A Public Environmental Review (PER) has been prepared by Vimy Resources Limited in accordance with Western Australian Government procedures and has been released for public review.  The PER document describes the proposal, examines the likely environmental effects and the proposed environmental management procedures associated with the proposed development.  

Public submissions closed on 8 March 2016.
