- The Appeals Registrar (WA Office of the Appeals Convenor) has notified Hastings that they have received no appeals on the EPA’s recommendation to approve the Yangibana Project.
- Next step in the approvals process is consultation with the Decision Making Authorities (“DMAs”), i.e. Ministers for Water, Mines and Aboriginal Affairs to obtain their agreement to the implementation of the project in accordance with the proposed conditions.
The DMAs will be provided with the draft conditions (as detailed in the EPA Assessment Report) for their consideration and must then provide their agreement to the implementation of the proposal subject to the draft conditions. The Minister for Environment will then consider the proposal and EPA recommendation.
The Yangibana project includes the development of five open pit mines, groundwater abstraction, on-site processing of ore, tailings storage facilities, access and haul roads and supporting infrastructure such as accommodation facilities, administration buildings and an airstrip.
