  • According to Australian Mining-Technology: "Mining firm Alkane Resources has received environmental approval from the Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) for its $1bn Dubbo Zirconia project (DZP) in New South Wales."

    DP&E said in a statement: "At this stage, the department is satisfied that the benefits of the project would outweigh its impacts, and that it should be approved subject strict conditions."

    Located in the central-west region of New South Wales, the DZP has estimated ore reserve of 35.93 million tonnes (Mt) at 1.93% zirconium, 0.04% hafnium, 0.46% niobium, 0.03% tantalum, 0.14% yttrium and 0.74% rare earth oxides. The resource is stated as 73.2Mt at 1.96% zirconium, 0.04%, hafnium, 0.46% niobium, 0.03% tantalum, 0.14% yttrium and 0.75% rare earth oxides.

    The DZP will now move to the Planning and Assessment Commission for review, with final determination expected by the end of the year.
