The first train from Mineral Resources’ Koolyanobbing operations has arrived at the Port of Esperance, signalling the end of a five-month long wait to ship iron ore from the south coast town.
The community and more than 120 workers at Esperance port were left in limbo in June when US miner Cleveland-Cliffs shut the mine, 55km north-east of Southern Cross.
They were subsequently sold to MinRes, which sent 7488 tonnes of iron ore fines on 106 wagons from the operations to Esperance last night.
The train arrived at the port early this morning.
MinRes will ship 6-6.25 million tonnes through Esperance for the next five to six years and says it is providing direct employment for 285 people and indirect employment for a further 415 connected to the mine, rail and shipping business.
