Starting again from the Port end - - -

Shipping of Concentrates to Market

We will transition from geared bulk carriers to larger cape size bulk carriers loaded from our own port or from barges via our own high volume trans-loading system.

Concentrate Delivery Rail to Port

Railroad operations will transition to appropriate high volume loading and unloading equipment, maximum capacity wagons, a rail spur built from Olary town to Olary Flats and a rotary car dumper adjacent to a port.

Concentrate Process Plant at Mine

We will use dry magnetic separation exclusively in the ore processing plant and expand the process plant and the mine as needed to meet market demand.
