The Lake Maitland uranium deposit, estimated at around 11,000 tonnes, is located 60 kms from Wiluna in the WA Goldfields.
Mega Uranium’s scoping document has been approved by the WA EPA and it is preparing an Environmental Review Management Plan.
There is opposition to this project from the community in Wiluna 30 kms away − the community is concerned about background levels of radiation and water consumption.
Mega Uranium has other uranium interests in WA, including Kintyre Rocks, Kintyre East and Coolbro Creek.
