FYI Resources Ltd’s (ASX:FYI) environmental and base line studies demonstrate positive outcomes and a low environmental impact for the Cadoux Kaolin Project in Western Australia.

The studies were conducted by Botanica Consulting Pty Ltd and are a precursor to the project permitting phases, with the findings suggesting a straightforward permitting process.


FYI managing director Roland Hill said the various environmental procedures and approvals were a critical pathway to the development of any project.

“Encountering obstacles and time delays can severely hamper or even in some cases stop the development of projects.

“We are extremely fortunate with the Cadoux Kaolin Project – not only with the high-quality kaolin and its excellent HPA refining characteristics, but also with the associated project attributes that result in a very positive environmental assessment and low impact report card.

“This will assist us immensely with our development certainty and time line.”

The studies showed that there are no significant rain drainage structures in the project area, and no groundwater was encountered in drilling indicating the water table is below the proposed pit level.

Surface soil and the kaolin resource were assessed to be non-acid forming materials, eliminating the risk of acid generation.

Flora and fauna did not factor extensively in the studies, with no priority flora identified in the area and no formal fauna surveys required.

Cadoux is not subject to any native title claims and does not contain any heritage-listed sites.

Cadoux’s topography is characterised by gently undulating landscapes of low relief, extensively cleared for agriculture and grazed by stock for many decades.

FYI’s mining trade-off study identified that the project is likely to have a low annual total mining rate, up to 240,000 tonnes total, supported by a small operational footprint, minimising the disturbance area.

Nearby infrastructure such as power, water, phone lines and proximity to major sealed roads and rail are considered by FYI as significant for permitting and capital expenditure.
