Toro uranium mine finally gets federal nod

TORO Energy has secured long-awaited federal environmental approval for its flagship Wiluna uranium mine, the first of its kind in Western Australia.

Environment Minister Tony Burke announced this week he would back Toro’s $269 million project, subject to 36 strict conditions, after a “rigorous environmental assessment”.

Federal approval for the project comes six months after it was given the go-ahead by the state government.

A decision had been expected in December, having already been delayed once before but it was pushed back again for several months at the request of the minister.

Among Mr Burke’s conditions of approval are demands that Toro prevents “significant adverse impact” on groundwater-dependent flora and fauna, and ensures the site is safe and non-polluting after its closure.

Toro managing director Vanessa Guthrie said the latest approval “provides a clear pathway to complete detailed engineering design, infrastructure and cost estimates for Wiluna”.
