The project’s aim was to develop a classification system for inland salt lakes, which may be used by the mining industry to dispose of excess water, in Western Australia, based on abiotic and biotic factors.

Lakes with unique or significant features would thus be indicated, and the resulting classification serves as a predictive tool to determine the impact of dewatering discharge within the Goldfields of Western Australia.
