Arafura Resources Limited is proposing to develop Nolans Project which is located in Australia’s Northern Territory, about 135 kilometres north-north-west of Alice Springs and 10 kilometres west of the Stuart Highway near Aileron Roadhouse. The project is construction, mining, processing, rehabilitation and decommissioning of a rare earth mine and associated infrastructure. Mining operations will be undertaken using conventional open pit methods at a maximum overall mining rate of ten million tonnes per annum, to produce an average one million tonnes of concentrator feed each year. The proponent has a registered office in Perth, Western Australia and an office in Darwin, N.T.


"The recent and current name is the Nolans Project. The project has previously been referred to as the Nolans Bore Project, Noland Rare Earth Project, and Nolans Bore Rare Earth Mine." - Page 1-5.
