Bauxite Resources (ASX: BAU) has received notice from the Environmental Protection Authority that its level of assessment for the proposed 2Mtpa mining operation at its North Bindoon Project in Western Australia, will require assessment via a Public Environmental Review.

Barry Carbon, chairman and acting CEO, said, "the EPA's determination of the level of assessment is in line with our expectations and gives the Company great certainty in the development of our long-term mining plans."

“As part of the referral BRL (Bauxite) recommended to the EPA that environmental assessment be through a public process, including public discussion of the scope of the assessment, and we now look forward to working closely with the local community to ensure we develop our project in consultation with the community.”

The bauxitic ore to be extracted under this proposal will either be sold for export as direct shipping ore or sold locally as other products including gravel.

Following crushing and screening, export-quality ore will be trucked along state highways and major transport routes to the Kwinana port for export, with non export-quality material including gravel available to local and regional commercial operations.

Bauxite earlier this year completed its trial shipments from Stephens Road, North Bindoon, consisting of 128,000 tonnes, and the trial area has now been rehabilitated and reseeded with pasture species as per the landholder’s requirements.
