 Bauxite Mining Exploration

Bauxite Alumina Joint Ventures (BAJV)(The Felicitas resource development) is currently in its exploration stage which includes exploring bauxite resources within the Shires of Northam, Toodyay and Mundaring (the majority of the bauxite deposit is located in Toodyay).  All mining exploration and extraction is exempt from Local Government approval through the Mining Act, therefore, the Shire is being consulted as an affected party but is not the approving body for the project.
For community members that are interested or concerned with this project, up-to-date information and FAQ sheets are available on the BAJV website at the following link www.bajv.com.au
