Koolanooka South Magnetite Project

Project
Proposal description: 

Westralian Iron Pty Ltd proposes to develop three bulk sample pits at Koolanooka South (Figure 1). The project site is located approximately 20 kilometres (km) due east of Morawa and 370 km north of Perth. Bulk sampling is required to assist with future planning and design for the proposed development and to provide sufficient material for a test regime to fully understand the characteristics of the ore to enable an efficient Magnetite processing plant to be designed. The bulk sampling programme would involve the development of three bulk sampling pits and stockpiles, access tracks, waste dumps and soil stockpiles and laydown areas and take up to 12 months. The project would require a maximum of 68 hectares (ha) of vegetation clearing.
