Northwestern Tasmania hosts some of the world’s highest grade and most productive tin mines, including Renison Bell, and the historic mines of Mount Bischoff and Cleveland. The region also hosts operating iron ore, lead/zinc, gold and copper mines.

The Cleveland mine is located at Luina about 60 km from Burnie. Access to the mine is by way of the sealed all weather road, which runs from Burnie through Waratah and Luina to Savage River.

Northwest Tasmania has well developed infrastructure and a strong mining culture. Power, water and communications are available onsite, with the site is linked to Burnie Port by sealed roads. The Burnie region has a large, available, and experienced workforce. The Tasmanian Government, Environmental Protection Authority and Mineral Resources Tasmania have all indicated support for the Company’s project.
