Movement South of Embley

Posted September 30, 2015


There are signs of life in the South of Embley Project on Cape York.

South of Embley is a greenfield bauxite operation in the Weipa / Aurukun region of Western Cape York.

The new development will eventually replace the existing East Weipa mine centre and develop the high quality bauxite reserves available south of the Weipa Peninsula. The Project involves the staged increase in production of up to 50 million dry product tonnes per annum (mdptpa).

Rio Tinto has currently approved the completion of a detailed feasibility study that will inform a final investment decision.
