Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Guidelines, prepared by the EPA Board, assist the proponent in preparing the case for assessment. The guidelines identify the key issues which, based on the information in the Notice of Intent, are expected to be key issues for the assessment of the proposal.
Draft project-specific EIS guidelines for two new mines are currently open for public comment until 21 May 2022:
Venture Minerals Limited, Mt Livingstone Mine, Tullah
A new iron ore mine comprising extraction at the Mt Livingstone site, crushing and screening at the site of the existing Riley Mine and Direct Shipment of Ore (DSO) via truck to Burnie port and onward shipment.
A new underground Tin-Tungsten-Magnetite-Copper mine including temporary surface waste storage and operating infrastructure.
The draft EIS guidelines and further details for both proposals are available from the Public Consultations page.
