Iron Road's vision is to become a trusted and reliable supplier of premium iron concentrates to the Asian marketplace
Key to achieving this vision will be Iron Road's two South Australian projects:
Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP) - A large 20Mtpa development that requires an industry partner
Gawler Iron Project - Potential for a 1-2Mtpa development, close to established rail with port access
Mining Lease Proposal and Environmental Impact Statement
The Period for submission of comments to the DSD and DPTI on the proposed Central Eyre Iron Project has now closed.
Central Eyre Iron Project
The public consultation period in relation to Iron Road’s Mining Lease Proposal (MLP) under the Mining Act, 1971 and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the Development Act, 1993 closed on 2 February 2016.
Iron Road was advised on 18 March 2016 that 105 submissions had been received and were provided with copies of each. All submissions, together with comments received from relevant agencies, have been published by SA Government and may be viewed at www.ceipconsultation.sa.gov.au.
Iron Road will now prepare two separate Response Documents for assessment by Government which will provide answers to all questions raised during the public consultation process. A Response Document in relation to the MLP will be lodged directly with the Department of State Development and one for the EIS will be submitted directly to the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. The relevant decision makers are the Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy for the MLP and the Minister for Planning and Governor of SA for the EIS.
The Company is pleased to advise that the majorityof the 105 submissions received were in support of the CEIP, citing the economic and social benefits the project would bring to the people of the Eyre Peninsula specifically and South Australia generally.
