Sorby Hills gets environmental greenlight

KBL’s Sorby Hills project has received environmental approvals from the West Australian Government. 

This final environmental hurdle for the silver, lead, zinc mine comes six months after it was granted EPA approval.

KBL has already completed a prefeasibility study for Stage one of the Sorby Hills project, based on a conventional open cut mine and sulphide flotation concentrator operation.

A feasibility study, mining permits and operational licence are now being progressed for the silver, lead and zinc project located north east of the Kimberley region in WA.

The WA approvals came with a number of conditions, such as compliance monitoring, monitoring of groundwater, and specific concentrate handling, storage, and transportation rules due to the lead being moved.
