Mining iron oreGindalbie Metal`s Karara Iron Ore Project near Geraldton in West Australia and Sinosteel Midwest flagship Weld Range Project, 65km south-west of Meekathara have reserves of 30 years and 15 years respectively.

Karara brings rail, power and water infrastructure, enhancing opportunity to develop other projects.

Construction commenced November 2009 with the concentrator site cleared and earthworks underway and the Karara Village construction started.

Iron products will initially be exported through Geraldton Port, with Karara also able to commit foundation tonnages to underpin the development of the new multi-billion dollar Oakajee Port.

The Weld Range project is at a well-advanced stage and should be ready for production by 2013.

The project has significant potential due to high-grade outcrops over a total 16km strike length.

The Bowen Basin contains the largest coal reserves in Australia. This major coal producing region contains one of the world’s largest deposits of bituminous coal.

The Basin contains much of the known Permian coal resources in Queensland including virtually all of the known mineable prime coking coal. It was named for the Bowen River, itself named after Queensland’s first Governor, Sir George Bowen.

The Bowen Basin covers an area of over 60,000 square kilometres in Central Queensland running from Collinsville to Theodore and is dotted with many coal mines operated by multiple mining companies.
