Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Chandler Facility

17 Feb 2017

Tellus Holdings Limited has released the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Chandler Facility for six weeks for public review. 

The Proponent proposes to develop the Project, approximately 120 km south of Alice Springs, Northern Territory. The development includes underground mining of halite (rock salt), with conversion of the mine voids to a waste storage facility for the secure storage of archives and equipment, and the permanent isolation of hazardous and difficult to manage wastes.

The Chandler Project was determined to be a controlled action and will require assessment and approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 before it can proceed. 

The Australian Government has accredited the EIS process under the Environmental Assessment Act for the purposes of assessing this action. 

The draft EIS is now available for public comment. Comments are to be submitted on or before 31 March 2017
