Principal: Sirius Resources
Location: Norseman, WA
Start Date: March 2015

The new tailing storage facility for Sirius Resources’ Nova Nickel Project will feature an aboveground impoundment with a maximum embankment height of 13.5 m. A single main embankment will surround the entire facility and will be approximately 800,000 cubic metres including a
composite liner system across the basin
footprint. Above the liner, an
underdrainage system with approximately eight kilometres of collection piping will also be installed to collect infiltration and aid in consolidation of the tailings.
