Toro Energy Limited (ASX:TOE) reported that the Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has approved the extension to the Wiluna Uranium Project in Central Western Australia. This extension is set to incorporate mining of the Millipede and Lake Maitland deposits, as well as construction of a haul road between Lake Maitland and the approved processing facility at Centipede.

As quoted in the press release:

The assessment has provided further opportunity for Toro to engage with the public and government
agencies to explain how development of the Millipede and Lake Maitland deposits can be undertaken
while protecting the environment and providing community benefits.

The EPA decision is now open to appeal for a two week period. The EPA’s report recommends the Proposal
be implemented subject to certain conditions and procedures. The Proposal is also being assessed by the
Federal Government under the bilateral arrangements for environmental assessment.
