THE BOURSE WHISPERER: Toro Energy (ASX: TOE) announced it will be hosting three public information sessions in the Northern Goldfields in regards to the company’s 100 per cent-owned Wiluna uranium project.
The three sessions will be held on 18, 19 and 20 January 2016 and are intended to provide a forum to inform the public about Toro’s proposal to extend the Wiluna uranium project and how submissions can be made to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) in relation to the proposal.
The Public Information Sessions will be held at the following venues and times:
Monday, 18 January 2016 – 2:00pm to 6:00pm – KALGOORLIE WMC Conference Centre, Macdonald Street, Kalgoorlie;
Tuesday 19 January 2016 – 2:00pm to 6:00pm – LEONORA Leonora Recreation and Aquatic Centre, Goldfields Highway, Leonora; and
Wednesday 20 January 2016 – 2:00pm to 6:00pm – WILUNA Wiluna Recreation Centre, Scotia Street, Wiluna.
In mid-November 2015 Toro released the Public Environmental Review (PER) for extending the Wiluna project.
The public now has the opportunity to make submissions on the PER until 8 February 2016.
“Toro has already secured the major environmental approvals from the Western Australian and Federal governments to establish a processing facility for the Wiluna project, and to commence mining of two deposits, Centipede and Lake Way,” Toro Energy said in its ASX announcement.
“The current PER describes Toro’s plans and the likely environmental impacts of integrating two additional deposits, Millipede and Lake Maitland, into an extended project.
“The information sessions provide the opportunity for the public to further engage in the assessment process and for Toro to outline how development of the Millipede and Lake Maitland deposits can be undertaken while protecting the environment and providing community benefits.”
