The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME) has welcomed today’s decision by the Federal Environment Minister in granting final environmental approval for Western Australia’s first Uranium project near Wiluna.
“CME is strongly of the view that for the WA resources sector to continue to thrive, it’s important we continue to diversify our export base,” CME Chief Executive Reg Howard-Smith said.
“By embracing new commodities like Uranium, we can increase jobs and opportunities for Western Australians while also reducing our global carbon emissions.”
“The community should feel confident that the process for approval, which has taken about three and half years, has been subject to a high level of scrutiny and consultation. The process has also been independently reviewed.
“Industry, and both State and Federal Governments are committed to a world best practice uranium mining industry which includes meeting all environmental and safety requirements.”
