Resource Group (WA) Pty Ltd proposes to construct and operate a hard rock quarry at the location of Grass Valley, 17 kilometres east of Northam WA. The project will process blasted rock from the quarry into smaller sized proportions suitable for use in concrete, roadworks and other civil works. The operation will produce no more than 70,000 tonnes of saleable product per annum.
Products will be transported from the quarry by road using truck and semi-trailers, both locally and to various sites in the Perth Metropolitan Area.
Water supply of approximately 8 Gigalitres per annum will be sourced from an existing bore, with back up supply from a public water point on Jennapullin Road and onsite dams.
The total disturbance footprint is approximately 15.2 hectares, including the clearing of up 7.2 hectares of degraded native vegetation.
The approximate life of the quarry is 20-30 years.
