Flinders Mines Limited (ASX: FMS) ("the Company" or "Flinders") is pleased to announce the granting of key Commonwealth and Western Australian Government environmental approvals for the development of the Company's flagship project in Western Australia.
Consistent with Section 45(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1986, the Western Australian Minister for Environment has determined that Flinders' PIOP can proceed subject to agreed conditions as set-out in Ministerial Statement No: 924.
Similarly, in accordance with Part 9 of the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act 1999 (EPBC Act), the Federal Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWP&C) has granted Flinders approval to proceed with its "on-tenement" mining and mining related activities up to 15 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) in accordance with the conditions specified in the approval.
The abovementioned approvals for a 15 Mtpa iron ore operation significantly further de-risk the PIOP. The existing approvals also reinforce that the PIOP can be developed in an environmentally acceptable manner.

Flinders will continue to progress remaining approvals pending the finalisation of infrastructure access arrangements and the commencement of mine construction activities.
Native title and mining lease approvals have already been granted for the PIOP, based on a current iron resource of 917 million tonnes.
The location of the PIOP ensures Flinders Mines has multiple possible routes to market via the proposed Anketell Point port, Port Hedland or other existing rail-coast operations in the Pilbara. The Company is targeting first production in the second half of 2015.
