Government Stop Order Forces Mine to Reassess Transport Safety Issues

In December, 2010, Rosslyn Hill received a stop order from the Western Australian government relating to unsafe transportation of lead concentrate through, to and within the Fremantle port. This resulted on the mine shutting down on January 5, 2011. The mine was placed on care and maintenance on April 7, 2011. On March 28, 2013 Rosslyn Hill announced it was re-opening the mine.

Mining methods used at the Paroo Station Mine follows the conventional open pit style of mining such as drilling and blasting. The mine consists of a series of open pits on Magellan Hill. Once blasted the ore is dug out with the use of excavators and loaded onto 85 tonne haulage trucks. The ore is processed on-site by means of crushing, grinding, sulphidization, froth flotation, dewatering and finally bagging.

The concentrate is bagged in internationally approved double lined two tonne bulk bags. The outside of each bag is vacuumed before it is loaded into a sealed shipping container. An independent inspector checks every bag before it is placed into the container.
