The Proposal

Mineral Holdings Australia Pty Ltd has proposed to extract, screen and crush up to 3,000 cubic metres of dolomite at "Togari" (mining lease 1906P/M), approximately 25 kilometres south-west of Smithton, for the purposes of collecting a bulk sample of material for analysis by industry.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Circular Head Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).

The purpose of the EER is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental and planning impacts of the proposal.

The EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.

Public Exhibition of Documentation and Public Representations

A copy of the permit application, and of all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) were made available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed.

Following the public comment period the proponent was required, by the Board, to prepare an EER Supplement to address issues raised in public and government agency consultation.
