Environmental Minister Decision rejects EPA's Recommendation on 22 April 2015

Albert Jacob rejects EPA's recommendation

of an API Category B (Environmentally unacceptable) level of assessment

for the J5 and Bungalbin East Iron Ore proposal


Hon Albert Jacob MLA (Minister for Environment) made the decision that the J5 and Bungalbin East proposal be "remitted to the EPA for assessment ..." .... to be conducted at the PER level of assessment (i.e. Public Environmental Review which can take one to two years to process).

He suggests the use of Landform as a key environmental factor is new and needs additional assessment.
