About: Paradise Phosphate Propriety Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legend International, is a phosphate development company developing the Paradise South Phosphate mine in North West Queensland, 135 kilometres north west of Mount Isa.

Paradise South to be Developed as an Open Pit Mining Operation

The Paradise South Phosphate project involves the development of an open pit mining operation capable of mining up to seven million tonnes of ROM (run-of-mine) phosphate bearing ore a year. The Paradise South mine has an expected life of 21 years working at maximum production levels.

Paradise South Beneficiation Plant Capable of Handling up to 12 .5 Million Tonnes Annually

The Paradise South phosphate mining project consists of a beneficiation plant capable of handling up to 12.5 million tonnes a year, with phosphate concentrate produced at the plant transported to Mount Isa via a 142 kilometre long slurry pipeline. On arrival at Mount Isa the concentrate slurry is dried before being loaded onto railway wagons to be taken to the Townsville port for exporting to the company's overseas customers, as well as to the Australian domestic market. The project also involves the construction of a two kilometre access road that will act as a haulage road from the Paradise South mine that links up with the Paradise North haulage road. It also requires the building of a 45 kilometre water pipeline to carry water from the Thorntonia Borefield to the Paradise South beneficiation plant, a 20 kilometre long transmission line leading from the Mica Creek Century Zinc transmission line as well as a sub-station. It is also planned to build a return water pipeline from Mount Isa back to the Paradise South mine. Infrastructure requirements at Mount Isa include a 2,500 million litre water supply dam along with a slurry de-watering plant and rail load out facility. If production tonnages are low the supply level will be maintained by transporting phosphate concentrate to Mount Isa by road transport via existing roads.
