Mount Peake Project
On 4 July 2013, TNG Limited submitted a Notice of Intent outlining a proposal to construct and operate the Mount Peake Project approximately 280km north of Alice Springs and 60km west of the Stuart Highway. The proposal included the following actions:
- Mining a poly-metallic ore body
- Beneficiation and hydrometallugical processing of the ore at the mine-site or offsite, to produce hematite powder (Fe2O2), vanadium pentoxide flake (V2O2) and titanium dioxide (TiO2);
- Transport of the products via a slurry pipeline or trucks to a new rail siding near Adnera, beside the Alice Springs to Darwin Railway, followed by rail transport to East Arm Wharf for export.
In November 2013, the Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) decided that the project requires assessment under the NT Environmental Assessment Act at the level of Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The project is a controlled action under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and is being assessed through an accredited assessment process. The relevant controlling provision is listed threatened species and communities (section 18 and 18A).
Terms of Reference for the development of an EIS were issued to TNG Limited for the Mt Peake Project on 7 March 2014. Prior being issued, draft Terms of Reference were made available for public and Government comment for a period of two weeks. The finalised and issued Terms of Reference address comments received during the exhibition period.
