The Paroo Station mine located in the mining district close to Meekatharra in West Australia produces a single lead carbonate concentrate from a shallow open pit and froth flotation processing plant. The expected optimised milling capacity is 2Mt/a. The sealed steel shipping containers containing bagged concentrate are transported by road from the Paroo Station Mine to Wiluna and to Leonora then from Leonora to the port of Fremantle by rail for shipment oversees. The company restarted operations in March 2013 and on February 2015 milling activities ceased with the plant then drained and secured for care and maintenance. The accompanying analysis assumes as re start year by the beginning of 2017 and includes an additional mine life of 4.17 years as estimated by the mining company in its March 2015 Technical Report NI 43 101.
