Through NT Bullions mine operator, Linecrest Pty Ltd, we have seen the benefits of NT know-how to bring the Frances Creek mine back into production through hard work and perseverance, especially during these COVID-19 challenges. Over the past nine months a research and development project has seen new German ore sorting technology from Steinert adapted in a worlds first for iron ore on the large stock pile at the Frances Creek Mine which is 250 kilometres south of Darwin. The technology enables stock piles of iron ore to be sorted into premium export grade lump and recycles the stock piles without any hard mining, contributing significantly to the rehabilitation of the mine. This new technology in mining provides consistent quality iron ore from otherwise uneconomic stockpiles from former mining operations, Mr Illingworth said. We are contributing to the NT economy while rehabilitating the Frances Creek Mine at the same time. The ore will be trucked 15 kilometres using the existing all-weather access road from the mine to the north-south rail line and then be railed directly into the Darwin Port.
