A pinch of salt for G&W

 
  Sulla1 Chief Commissioner

Looks like G&W may be getting some new tonnage soon, the Chandler Salt Mine is 32km from the Adelaide-Darwin railway and plans to produce 500,000-tonnes of processed salt per annum with exports via Darwin...

Good pickup.  The mine has an expected life of 500 years making a rail brach viable in almost any other jurisdiction.  So will it happen in Australia?

i cannot see where the article states the output will travel by rail?

It's as best an inference, but the railway is mentioned in the project's planning. The expected tonnage is more than some of the other mines that have used that line in recent years. I suspect the product will be mostly containerised and loaded onto rail at Alice Springs.

Mine roads - 26 km haulage road from the mine to the Darwin Adelaide railway line

Mine rail siding (2 km) (Chandler Siding) alongside existing Adelaide/Darwin railway line.
