Yoongarillup Mineral Sands Project


This report provides the Environmental Protection Authority’s (EPA’s) advice and recommendations to the Minister for Environment on the outcomes of its environmental impact assessment of the Yoongarillup Mineral Sands Project.

The proposal is to develop, mine, rehabilitate and decommission the project. The proposal is located approximately 17 kilometres south east of Busselton. The proposal includes: the construction of the mine and associated infrastructure (offices, workshops, laydown area, roads, and ore processing facilities); the mining and processing of heavy mineral concentrate; the backfilling of mined pits; and the rehabilitation and decommissioning of disturbed areas. Heavy mineral concentrate produced at the mine site will be transported offsite by road for further processing.
