New Iron Ore Proposal for NW: The Examiner reports

Forward Mining announced on 20 March that they were planning a new magnetite iron ore mine near Hampshire in the state’s North West which they said had the potential to employ up to 200 people through construction and about 100 people during production.

If the approval is successful, it is hoped that mining will start in late 2016 or early 2017 and it appears that it will avoid environmental delays.
