New mining project to bolster employment

By Staff Reporter

The latest mining project proposed in north west Tasmania has the potential to create hundreds of jobs and opportunities for investment in the region, according to premier Lara Giddings.

According to Ms Giddings, the federal government’s decision to reject the Australian Heritage Council’s advice to list areas of the Tarkine on the National Heritage Register has opened the door to new mining investment in the state.

Venture Minerals’ proposal for a new $200 million tin mine at Mount Lindsay is expected to create 1,000 jobs, joining Venture’s Riley Creek mine and recently approved Shree Metals mine near Balfour.

"I am very excited about the prospects for new mines which have the potential to create hundreds of direct jobs in the north west and support many more at companies like Welding Works,” Ms Giddings said.

"The Riley mine is one of three major projects Venture is developing in the north west. A mining lease has been granted to the company for its Livingstone project also near Tullah, and it is finalising its Mt Lindsay tin and tungsten mine."

Ms Giddings said these mining projects will have flow-on benefits for local businesses such as engineering firms and contractors.
