CEO Rob Bills talks about the NT Government Initiative

Tennant Creek Mining and Mining Services Centre
The Labor Government's pre-election commitment to developing the mining services industry in Tennant Creek will be given a boost with a commitment to the feasibility study into building a common user mine and processing facility in the town.
This study will determine the viability of this project with the aim to be to allow small mining operations to get underway without the cost of a major investment in their processing costs. This is an impediment which is preventing small companies and mining efforts from getting underway.
This project comes on top of investment in 2017-18 of $6.5 million for an Early Childhood Integrated Learning Centre, $5 million into upgrading the town's sporting facilities and $1 million in entrance statements for the town.
