Mt Moss Mining employs over 75 personnel working across all mining areas and welcomes resumes from suitably experienced persons.

Five iron ore shipments in 2010 bound for steel mills in China are the culmination of 10 years of hard work developing mining and processing circuits at Mt Moss.

Mt Moss is one of the largest skarn magnetite deposits on Australia’s east coast. The mine is situated in the old Ewan mining field, 150km north-west of Townsville in North Queensland, which saw pioneer Australians explore and mine rich copper and tin in the area from 1890 until the 1930’s.

Since 1958, various international mining companies including BHP and MIM have explored the area for copper, lead, zinc and tin mineralisation. In 2005, Curtain Bros bought mining lease ML 10171 from Jervois Mining NL (a small, publically listed exploration company) and set up a subsidiary company called Mt Moss Mining.

Curtain Bros then commenced construction of site workshop facilities, offices, laboratory, camp and accommodation facilities as well as 50 km of roads to a standard suitable to haul large tonnages of iron ore product.

During the construction phase, over 30,000 meters of combined percussion chip and diamond core drilling was completed to delineate a magnetite iron ore resource in excess of 20Mt. The potential for significant additional resources containing copper and zinc credits is very high.

Open pit mining commenced on the Willett’s Knob deposit in 2007.

Mt Moss Mining processes stockpiled magnetite ore through two separate beneficiation circuits to produce a range of saleable product streams.
