China's largest magnetite ore project makes first shipment from Australia
PORT CAPE PRESTON, Australia, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- With a beep of the horn, the first shipment of magnetite concentrate by CITIC Pacific Mining departed Port Cape Preston, Western Australia, on Monday, an encouraging move for the troubled project.
Barge loaders carried magnetite concentrate product from the stockpiles on land to a ship moored offshore.
The first shipment of some 40,000 tons of magnetite concentrate will head to CITIC Pacific's special steel mill in Jiangsu Province, east China.
