Ashburton River Sand and Shingle Excavation within Mining Leases 08/458 and 08/461

Proposal description: 

Onslow Resources Ltd proposes to mine up to 2.3 million tonnes of river sand and shingle in the Ashburton riverbed within the Minderoo Pastoral Lease. Mining will only take place when the river is dry and production will be limited by the rate that material is able to be replenished by flow events. Mining will be confined to replenishable material.

The operation is small and low impact within M08/458 and M08/461 and will produce two product lines: sand and aggregate.
