The US Environmental Protection Authority has given Western Australia-based Bulletin Resources the green light to proceed with their drilling applications for the Ravensthorpe Lithium Project.

The agency determined that the project's environmental impact needs to be more significant to warrant further assessment.

This decision will let the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety process the native vegetation clearing permit for the project.

Bulletin will continue the clearing permit discussions with DMIRS and is anticipating approval to start drilling as soon as possible.
