Bauxite mining in the Darling Range Western Australia - A Report to the EPA

Summary:

Alcoa of Australia Limited proposes to establish an alumina refinery at Wagerup, Western Australia. As required by the Alumina Refinery (Wagerup) Agreement and Acts Amendments Act, 1978, the Company submitted to the Minister for Industrial Development an Environmental Review and Management Programme (ERMP) in respect of the refinery to be constructed and the mining associated with it. The Minister has referred the Wagerup Environmental Review and Management Programme (WERMP) to the Environmental Protection Authority for their advice under Section 57 (1) of the Environmental Protection Act, 1971-75. Because the issues involved in the environmental assessment are complex, and some of the most important ever to face the State of Western Australia, the Environmental Protection Authority appointed a Technical Advisory Group to review the document with special reference to the following broad issues:

  • the potential increase in the salinity of stream base flow
  • the impacts of mining on the ecosystem of the Northern Jarrah Forest
  • the need for a determination of the long term land use objectives of the Darling Range.
The Technical Advisory Group was briefed on 28 June, 1978, and this report was presented on 4 August, 1978.
