Australian mining and exploration company Kalium Lakes Limited (KLL) has announced that the Mining Proposal and Mine Closure Plan have now been assessed and approved by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and determined to provide the information required in the guidelines approved under section 700 of the Mining Act 1978 (the Act). The mining proposal relates to the minor and preliminary Works for the Beyondie Sulphate Of Potash Project (BSOPP) in Western Australia.
On 28 May 2018, KLL announced that it had received a notice of decision to Consent to Minor and Preliminary Works under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (WA) from the Environmental Protection Authority of Western Australia (EPA) for the BSOPP.
The approvals reportedly allow for the construction, operation and maintenance of:
- Site access road upgrade;
- Upgrade accommodation camp, including the waste water treatment plant;
- Workshop upgrade; and
- Upgrade of communication towers.
KLL has also announced that all of the other licenses for the project have been granted.
These miscellaneous licences reportedly allow for the development of the following supporting infrastructure; gas pipeline, water pipeline, power line, bridge/culverts, search for groundwater, taking water, meteorological station, communications facility, drainage channel, pump station, mine site accommodation facility, bore and borefield, water management facility, power generation, storage and transport facility for mine concentrate, mine site administration facility, workshop and storage facility.
Managing Director of Kalium Lakes Limited, Brett Hazelden, commented: “The approval of the mining proposal and grant of our initial Mining Tenure requirements ensures that we are able to undertake the early works construction activities this calendar year, while the remaining approvals for the BSOPP are processed.”
