One of two key environmental approvals has been granted to Pilbara Minerals for the development of its Pilgangoora lithium-tantalum project near Port Hedland in Western Australia, taking the project another step closer to construction.

Pilbara Minerals has been granted a permit to clear native vegetation – under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (WA) which is subject to particular terms, conditions and restrictions. The project is still awaiting other environmental approvals.

Pilbara Minerals is also currently progressing its mining proposal with the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) – another vital environmental approval required before major site works can begin.

According to Pilbara Mineral’s Managing Director and CEO Ken Brinsden, the company is in the final stages of the environmental approvals process.

“In an industry where the development of major new resource projects is often measured in decades rather than years, Pilbara has achieved an enormous amount in a very short period of time.

“In the space of 12 months, we have advanced and de-risked the project through resource drill-out, feasibility and now with environmental approvals nearing completion. This impressive performance is a credit to the Pilbara team and we look forward to delivering our first product in the early part of next year,” Mr Brinsden said.
