Meet a few member of our Mount Margaret Mining team.
About Mount Margaret
Ore production has commenced at Xstrata Copper's $300 million Mount Margaret Mining operation in north-west Queensland, following the official start of mining activities last month, with ore now being trucked to Ernest Henry Mining for processing.
The mine will add around 30,000 tonnes of annual copper production to Ernest Henry Mining over this period and strengthen the economics of Ernest Henry by taking immediate advantage of the available installed capacity of the concentrator and associated infrastructure.
In total, the Mount Margaret operation will add an additional 20 million tonnes of ore to Ernest Henry's existing production profile throughout its five year life, producing around 140,000 tonnes of copper, 83,000 ounces of gold and 560,000 tonnes of magnetite in concentrate over that time.
