The proponent, Mount Gibson Mining Limited, proposes to mine hematite ore from the Iron Hill and Iron Hill South Deposits. The Iron Hill Deposits are part of the Mt Gibson Range, which is located approximately 270 kilometres (km) east-south-east of Geraldton. The proposal is located within a 112 hectare (ha) development envelope. The proposal is for the development of two mine pits (20 ha), a waste rock landform (30 ha) and support infrastructure (37 ha), which includes topsoil stockpiles and internal mine roads. The life of the mine is two to three years.
