Extension, cleanup and rehabilitation of mineral sands mine, Wonnerup

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to continue current mining of the orebody at Wonnerup, south of the mouth of the Wonnerup Inlet. The orebody contains heavy mineral sands and tailings remaining from mining done by another company in the 1960s. Cleanup work on the tailings remaining from the previous mining operation began in 1989 and is expected to be completed by March 1992. The proposal to mine adjacent to the existing operations would extend the mine life up to 12 months, with land restoration and revegetation of the site being completed by September/October 1993.
