Western Australia’s Environmental Protection Authority has approved BHP Billiton’s long-term plan for its iron ore operations in the Pilbara. However, the EPA’s deputy chairman Robert Harvey has stressed that BHP will still need to submit each development proposal for environmental approval. BHP’s Pilbara Expansion-Strategic Proposal includes the expansion of existing iron ore mines and the potential development of up to 13 new mines in the Pilbara.
