Parker Range (Mount Caudan) Iron Ore Project

Project
Proposal description: 

The proposal is for the development and operation of the Parker Range Project, located in the Mount Caudan section of the Parker Range within the Shire of Yilgarn. It includes the development and operation of an above and below the watertable greenfields iron ore mine and associated infrastructure. An existing gazetted road (Parker Range Road) runs across the ore body. A gazetted bypass road would be required around the proposed mine site requiring approximately 10 ha of clearing. Ore from the proposal would be transported via existing roads and a new 7 km section of private road to the proposed Moorine Rocks rail siding and then via existing rail infrastructure to port facilities on the coast. The mine would operate for up to 10 years and have a potential throughput of up to 4 million tonnes per annum.
