230804001831: Amendment application: Langer Heinrich Mine Water Supply Scheme and maintenance to infrastructure

Publication Year:

The ECC is for an amendment on the existing Langer Heinrich Mine (LHU) Water Supply Scheme. LHU was placed under Care and Maintenance in June 2018 due to the prevailing low uranium price. A pre-feasibility study to restart the mine and Return to Production was completed in June 2020 followed by a valued add study in June 2021. In July 2022 Paladin Energy announced the final investment decision to restart LHU, planned in the first quarter of 2024. According to the Mine Restart Plan, mining and processing is envisioned for a further 17 years - i.e. a Life of Mine (LOM) until 2041.
