Mining magnate Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting has filed for environmental approval for a 20 million tonne per annum (mtpa) iron ore mine on her family’s Mulga Downs station in the Pilbara. The proposed area is located within an area of existing pastoral and mining land use with transport of the ore proposed via the Great Northern Highway to Port Hedland for export.
According to the proposal filed with the Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), facilities will be developed to support production of up to 20 million tonnes of ore per annum (Mtpa) over a minimum 30-year period. The Mulga Downs project includes, but is not limited to, mine associated infrastructure and support facilities including an accommodation camp, energy supply infrastructure, airstrip, wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and an ore processing facility.
