Davies calls on Government to fast-track mine expansion

Central Wheatbelt MP Mia Davies has called on the McGowan Government to fast-track approval for a Westonia mine expansion or risk losing more local jobs.


Ms Davies said more than 100 jobs across Merredin, Westonia, Mukinbudin, Nungarin, Bodallin, Burracoppin and Kellerberrin had already been lost due to delays in the granting of a clearing application for a second pit at Ramelius Resources Edna May operations.


Failure to secure the clearing application – expected to be submitted to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety this week – would put further jobs at risk at Ramelius’ other mine sites at Narembeen and Southern Cross.
