text-Please-NoteToro releases Wiluna environmental report for public input Mining Weekly By: Natalie Greve  6th October 2014 JOHANNESBURG ( – Following an environmental assessment, uranium developer Toro Energy has released the environmental scoping document (ESD) for the planned extension of the company’s wholly-owned Wiluna uranium project, in Western Australia .

This followed prior approval by the state and federal governments for the establishment of a processing facility and the start of mining at Wiluna’s Centipede and Lake Way deposits.

The ESD provided information about Toro’s plans to integrate two additional deposits at Millipede and Lake Maitland into an expanded Wiluna project and identified the key environmental issues to be addressed during further government assessment of the project.

This would guide the preparation of a Public Environmental Review, which continued the government’s assessment and approval process………
