Stavely Ground Release Information sessions

Online discussions temporarily replacing community meetings

Westrock Minerals Pty Ltd has been issued the third Minerals Exploration Licence from 2018’s Stavely Ground Release. The Victorian-based company will be searching for minerals in an area covering Glenthompson, Caramut, Chatsworth, Minjah and west of Mortlake (PDF9.0 MB).

Interactive online information sessions were held on 10-11 June to introduce the licensee and answer questions about minerals exploration, landholder rights, explorer obligations and environmental safeguards.  These sessions also included information about a land access consent tool that can assist landholders with negotiations with explorers.

Online information sessions will replace our regular community meetings for the foreseeable future.  We will return to face-to-face meetings when safe to do so.  In the meantime, we can organise individual telephone discussions or small online group meetings to address local concerns.

For further information, please contact Donna Mongan, Senior Engagement Officer, on 0436 662 399.
