The Fingerboards Mineral Sands Project Environment Effects Statement (EES) is now on public exhibition. You can read this media release for further information.
We have prepared a video showing how to navigate the EES process and a PDF showing how to make a submission on the EES. Both can be viewed below.
The Fingerboards Mineral Sands Project focuses on a high-grade area of heavy minerals in the Glenaladale deposit, about 20km northwest of Bairnsdale in East Gippsland, Victoria.
The project has the potential to be one of the world’s major producers of zircon, ilmenite, rutile and rare earths – minerals essential to technology, transport, communications and renewable energy.
Kalbar proposes to invest over $200 million in the development of the project, creating 200 direct jobs over the 15-20 year life of the project and creating significant economic benefits for the region.
The EES Specialist Q&A Webinar was held on October 14th 2020. The recorded video of the webinar can be found below, together with the Q&A document which records all of the questions asked during the webinar, the questions submitted prior to the webinar, and the questions asked during the webinar and were not able to be answered on the night.
In a previous Project Bulletin we mentioned that we are planning to host a webinar in mid-October to facilitate a question and answer session with key consultants who undertook specialist studies for the Fingerboards project EES. We now confirm that the webinar will be held on Wednesday 14 October 2020 at 7 pm AEST.
