Mount Isa Mines is one of the biggest mining operations in Australia. Part of the Glencore group, Mount Isa’s operations and products play vital roles in its local community. Glencore Mt Isa mining is the second largest producer of copper in Australia; our copper mines comprise the largest network of underground mine development in the world. Our operation encompasses underground mines, as well as a copper concentrator, copper smelter and supporting services. Mount Isa Mine is also home to Glencore’s largest source of zinc concentrate, as well as being one of the largest zinc mines in the world. Our zinc assets consist of two underground mines, two open cut mines, a zinc-lead concentrator and filter plant, a lead smelter, and supporting services. Our community development activities are a key part of our commitment to the Mount Isa community. These programmes help us develop partnerships with local community organisations, and give us the opportunity to support local art and culture, education, enterprise and job creation, environment, social and community development, and health initiatives. Since 2005, we have invested about $33 million through our community development projects and initiatives across our north Queensland communities spanning Mount Isa, Cloncurry, Camooweal, Bowen and Townsville.

Mount Isa, today very much a ghost town rather than Australia's largest copper producer and major source of lead and zinc. The industrial dispute stretching into months of deadlock has caused a complete shutdown of underground mining, and the resultant economic repercussion are little short of disastrous. Every working day this huge plant lies idle costs Australia a loss in export income of 135,000. Obviously, millions of pounds are involved. Intervening, the Queensland Govenment issued emergency orders in Council, principally aimed at preventing Labour Council President, McMahon, and unofficials miner's leader, Pat Mackie from returning to Mount Isa, after Trade union-Fund Raising discussions in Sydney. This is a memorial to Campbell Miles, who first discovered mineral in the Mount Isa area in 1923. In those days isa was a cattle town and transit point for the wide-spread stations throughout the channel country. It was, and still is, a hard, rugged expanse which could perhaps best enjoy the typical description of a "thirsty brown land". The hill country on the outskirts of Mount Isa, where prospectors search for the bonanza, and which, when it was found, turned out to be a virtual mountain of copper. Active mining commenced in 1932, and the first signs of a vast industry began to show. Isolated from civilization, the attraction of big money brought miners to work, and then to stay, with their families to work, as the town continued its growth. Preparing for compulsory conferences aimed at settlement, representatives of unions involved. JACK DEVERAUX, HARRY PEEBLES and COL. EMERY.

Mt Isa: Xstrata mining emissions causing lead poisoning in children
Views: 1132 Greenshack Dotinfo
Mount Isa Region The outback Queensland city of Mount Isa has been cut in two by floodwaters following heavy rainfall. Mount Isa (/ˈaɪzə/ eye-zə) is a city in the Gulf Country region of Queensland, Australia. It came into existence because of the vast mineral deposits found in the area. Mount Isa Mines (MIM) is one of the most productive single mines in world history, based on combined production of lead, silver, copper and zinc. With an estimated urban population of 21,821 as at June 2015, Mount Isa is the administrative, commercial and industrial centre for the state's vast north-western region. Although situated in an arid area, the artificial Lake Moondarra 19 kilometres (12 mi) north of the city on the Leichhardt River provides both drinking water and an area for watersports, birdwatching and recreation. Locals often refer to Mount Isa as "The Isa". Due to the lead production in the city, Mount Isa has one of the most intensive air quality monitoring systems in Australia. Concerns have been raised over childhood lead contamination and air pollution within the city.[7 More than 100mm has fallen over the city since Thursday t Isa Post Office opened on 1 August 1924. A location for the town's hospital was chosen in 1929, with a small building completed the following year. In 1931, a larger structure was moved to the site from the closed mining town of Kuridala. Heritage listings Mount Isa has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: Camooweal Street: Underground Hospital Camooweal Street: Tent House Mount Isa Mining District: Bower Bird Battery on Mount Isa Mine Lease: Mount Isa Mine Early Infrastructure Nettle Street: Casa Grande Governance Mount Isa at local level is part of the City of Mount Isa, at state level is part of the electoral district of Mount Isa in the Legislative Assembly of Queensland, and at federal level is part of the Division of Kennedy in the Australian House of Representatives. The mayor of Mount Isa, after the 2015 Local Government Elections, is Joyce Mccullough. The City of Mount Isa LGA jurisdiction, covering 43,188 km2 (17th largest in Queensland), is one of the largest in the world in terms of area and takes in the border town of Camooweal, 188 km (117 mi) to the north-west of Mount Isa and 12 km (7.5 mi) from the border of the Northern Territory. Local industry and business Mount Isa's industry is largely dependent on mining. Xstrata Plc operates the Mount Isa Mines lease adjacent to the city, which comprises the "Enterprise" underground copper mine, X41 underground copper mine, "Black Star Open Cut" silver-lead zinc mine, and metallurgical processing facilities. Silver-lead-zinc ore is also mined 20 km (12 mi) to the north at Hilton from the "George Fisher" underground mine, and the adjoining "Handlebar Hill" open cut, which is trucked back to Mount Isa for processing. Mount Isa is in the top two of the largest copper mining and smelting operations in the country. Copper and lead are smelted on site, with copper anodes and zinc concentrate being transported 900 km (560 mi) to the city and port of Townsville on the east coast. The lead ingots are transported to a refinery in Britain where the silver is extracted. The mine is the most significant landmark in the area, with the stack from the lead smelter (built 1978), standing 270 m tall, visible from all parts of the city and up to 40 km (25 mi) out. In 2008 a Queensland Health report found that more than 10% of children in Mount Isa had blood lead levels above World Health Organization recommendations. The mining operator Xstrata denied responsibility and stated that the town has naturally high levels of lead in the soil. However, aafternoon and one car was swept off a causeway.

It's a long way to travel without getting an idea of what the town is all about; Fletch catches up with local Brett from Mt Isa Mining Supplies who gives an insight, not on what's above ground but more about what's underground. Here are some interesting facts, they are mining 1,980 metres or nearly 2kms below ground, that's 26 levels down and counting. Underground there is 1,700 km of road and 1,000 km of railway. Mt Isa is recognised as one of the top 10 mining producers in the world with Copper, Silver, Lead and Zinc all sourced from this very remote site. Another fascinating aspect of the outback is the road trains, and Fletch stops road train driver for a chat. Steve tells us about his 2014 Kenworth 18 speed Road Ranger powered by a 600HP diesel engine, and all that power is needed to pull the 135-tonne payload in the 4 trailers that total 53 metres in length, with 18 axles and 70 tyres. Finally, Fletch finds a Rod Rat enthusiast Ricky and talks about his two 1930 Model A Coupe & Tudor that are in various stages of restoration. Mt Isa is full of surprises and well worth a stopover when you're next out that way.

ROBBIE Katter has welcomed a multi-million dollar announcement to stimulate jobs and the economy in North Queensland. The State Member for Mount Isa said news of $15 million towards the re-brick project at Glencore was a much-needed boost for families before Christmas. “Through my discussions with Government on how to stimulate the region, keeping Mount Isa Mines alive and strong has always been front and centre,” he said. “Mount Isa Mines is the foundation for many other businesses in the region - outlined by being named in 2009, to have made the most significant contribution to the State’s economy since 1859.” Mr Katter said the announcement was part of a long-term strategy for the longevity of the entire region. “This is the result of many months of high-level discussions with the Government and Mike Westerman from MIM and I see it as the first step in a program to significantly add to the mine life,” he said. “It has been a high priority to see assistance for the mining industry - and at the very least ensures the copper smelter stays open until 2022 in Mount Isa.” “The bottom line is that if we can keep Mount Isa Mines strong, we can keep businesses in the region going and ensure a long and prosperous future.” “As the key driver for jobs and the economy, the mining sector needs Government assistance to give the mines a desperately needed boost.” “This announcement will mean significantly prolonging the future of the mine – and importantly, keeping jobs and families in the city.” “It also assists with keeping the copper refinery in Townsville open.” Mr Katter said the benefits of the assistance for the mining industry would be wide-ranging. “Particularly with Mount Isa Mines starting to smelt concentrate from other mines in the region it will have a positive flow-on effect,” he said. “It’s also key to ensuring we can keep high volumes of product on the rail line.” Mr Katter said enabling key industries was vital for the future of the region. “The Mount Isa electorate generated $300 million in royalties in the 2015-16 financial year – we will see this continue with Government support to drive this important industry.” “We’ve been crying out for the wealth created by the industry to be funnelled back into the region.” ENDS

Emmerson Resources Ltd (ASX:ERM) managing director Rob Bills speaks to Proactive Investors about the latest news from the Tennant Creek Mineral Field, in Australia's Northern Territory. The explorer and producer holds a lot of land in the area, with a number or projects at various stages of development, from early-stage surveying work through to gold bar production. Bills describes RC drilling results from the Mauretania and West Gibbet prospects as showing, "thick, high-grade intercepts of gold, copper, and also we're seeing some bismuth and cobalt. Fantastic results, some of the best we've seen, certainly the best at West Gibbet." "Excitingly, the drilling has shown that there's a lot of gold quite close to the surface, so it's amenable to open pit mining, which is obviously quite economic... we've also intersected a new zone of mineralisation - ten meters at about 7.6 grams per tonne gold - a bit deeper down, a totally new zone we didn't know was there before. So it opens up that potential of having some shallow high-grade [mining] up higher, and then potentially opportunity for an underground development," explains Bills. Additionally, an airborne geophysical survey of the Northern Corridor at Tennant Creek has been completed, with results due to shore up targets for another drilling campaign next quarter.
