Sinosteel's Blue Hills Mungada mine.

EPA rejects Sinosteel’s Mungada mine proposal

The Environmental Protection Authority has rejected Sinosteel Midwest Corporation’s proposal to develop a new mine pit at its Blue Hills Mungada East hematite project due to irreversible environmental consequences.

The rebuff follows the EPA’s recent request that Karara Mining forgo mining on Mungada Ridge, and that the government declare it a class-A nature reserve.

The appeal is part of a bigger two-year advocacy project the EPA has pursued in a quest for greater conservation in Western Australia’s banded iron ranges, which range from the Mid West to the Goldfields region.
