Sinosteel's Blue Hills Mungada mine.

EPA gives nod for Sinosteel's Mungada exploration

The Environmental Protection Authority has recommended strict conditional approval of Sinosteel Midwest Corporation’s proposal for exploration drilling at its Blue Hills Mungada East hematite project.

The proposal involves the clearing of existing and new access tracks and the levelling of drill pads for exploration in the area, which is located on the Mungada Ridge in the Blue Hills, about 70 kilometres east of Koolanooka.

The size of the proposed cleared area is less than one hectare and falls within the same area as another proposal Sinosteel put forward for mining, which the EPA determined was environmentally unacceptable in November last year.
