Bulletin Resources Limited (ASX: BNR) has provided an update to its Ravensthorpe Lithium Project. As previously reported, Bulletin’s Native Vegetation Clearing Permit was referred to the Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority by a third party.
At the time, in line with typical approval processes, the Clearing Permit was being assessed by DMIRS. The EPA subsequently considered the significance of the effect on the environment of the proposal and whether to assess the proposal and, if the decision was to assess, the level of assessment.
The EPA have completed their investigations and have formally advised Bulletin of their decision not to assess the proposal. This decision is not appealable. When the EPA decides not to assess a proposal, it determines that the likely effect on the environment is not so significant as to warrant further investigation and assessment. T
he EPA has advised Bulletin’s small scale and short term exploration programme impacts on flora, vegetation and fauna can be adequately considered by DMIRS via a Clearing Permit, in line with typical approval processes. This decision paves the way for progressing the drilling programme at the Ravensthorpe Lithium Project.
Bulletin will now resume the clearing permit process with DMIRS. Bulletin has implemented several new avoidance and mitigation strategies to further ensure minimal disturbance of the local flora, vegetation and fauna and remains committed to following all necessary guidelines and requirements to mitigate any potential impact on the environment. Bulletin has stated it looks forward to the receipt of drilling approvals and will continue to update shareholders as the approvals process progresses.
