Copper Mines of Tasmania is the successor company to the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company that operated in Queenstown, Tasmania for just short of one hundred years. The first form of the company existed during the time of the Mount Lyell Remediation and Research and Demonstration Program Following the first form going into administration in 1998 the mine was then acquired in 1999 by Monte Cello BV. First it operated as a subsidiary and then acquired by Sterlite Industries (India) Limited It is now owned by Vedanta Resources. Its mine output goes to supply the companies copper smelter in Tuticorin, India. Production stopped at the mine in January 2014 following three deaths. Its reopening was subsequently prevented by a rockfall. As of July 2014, it was not expected to reopen for up to three years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_Mines_of_Tasmania Please support this channel and help me upload more videos.

Indian smelter shutdown casts uncertainty on Tasmanian copper mine restart: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-05/mt-lyell-start-up-questioned-after-indian-smelter-close/9835032. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Indian smelter shutdown casts uncertainty on Mt Lyell copper mine restart in Tasmania By Damian McIntyre There are new uncertainties about the reopening of the mothballed Mount Lyell copper mine on Tasmania's west coast.Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT) put the mine into caretaker mode more than four years ago after three miners died in two incidents, resulting in about 200 job losses, but there are plans to reopen it with help from a Tasmanian State Government subsidy.CMT parent company Vedanta has now been forced to shut down its copper smelter in India due to environmental concerns.CMT was sending its ore to the Indian smelter when the operation was in production, and the plan was to send the product there again when operations recommenced.The Tamil Nadu State Government's order to permanently shut down the Tuticorin smelter came after police shot dead 13 protesters at the site in May, when people opposing a planned expansion of the site had gathered.Wayne Bould from the Tasmanian Minerals and Energy Council has downplayed concerns."It's not the only smelter in the world, and certainly any company has the capacity to make an arrangement with another smelter somewhere else in the world," Mr Bould said."Speculating doesn't add any value to the argument about Mt Lyell either way, and alternative arrangements can be in place.The Mount Lyell mine at Queenstown was the site of three fatal mining accidents.Craig Gleeson, 45, and Alistair Lucas, 25, fell to their deaths in the Mt Lyell Copper Mine in Queenstown when the wooden platform they were working on collapsed in December 2013.Thirty-nine days later, 55-year-old Michael Welsh died after he was crushed by a sudden inundation of mud while he was removing sediment from the same mine. The Tasmanian Government has committed $9.5 million for projects aimed at restarting the mine.An announcement about a reopening was expected this year.West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said he wasn't concerned."Vedanta's a really big company, they've invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the care and maintenance and the redevelopment there, along with the State Government's contribution so I think it will reopen in due course," he said.In a presentation on Vedanta's website, the company's chairman Anil Agarwal said the company wanted the Indian smelter to continue operating."We are waiting for clearance from the court and the government to restart the plant," he said."We are strictly following what the court and government orders are."A spokesman from Copper Mines of Tasmania said it still planned to reopen the Queenstown mine, and was looking at other options for smelting its product. #Indian, #smelter, #shutdown, #casts, #uncertainty, #Tasmanian, #copper, #mine, #restart #mtlyell, #coppermine, #smelter, #close, #startup

Queenstown is an old mining town in Western Tasmania, that has been recognised by the National Trust as a historic town. It is about a 5 hour drive from Hobart on the Lyell Highway. Mining began here in the late 1800s, first with gold and later copper. It remains an important industry and the main employer. In 2005-06, Copper Mines of Tasmania produced 2.6 million tonnes of copper concentrate. Tourism is a growing industry. Queenstown is the base of the West Coast Wilderness Railway, which runs to Strahan and draws large numbers of tourists. Queenstown is an interesting town, nestled in the Queen River valley. Summers can be hot and can reach 30+ degrees, although it is not uncommon to have snow on Mt Owen in December. Winters are cool and wet, with snow falling regularly on the peaks on the West Coast Range that can be seen from the town. It is not uncommon for the roads into Queenstown to be blocked, and for the town cut off for short periods during the middle of winter. The best time to visit is between December and April. Many of the early buildings remain and a stroll around town is a must if you want a sense of what the town was like during the height of the copper mining operations. The drive in to Queenstown over Gormanston Hill is a startling introduction to the town. The barren landscape was brought about by the combination of tree removal for the smelters, and the subsequent years of pollution. Trees were logged to fuel the furnaces of the smelters in the early years. Then large amounts of sulphur from the smelting process polluted the soils, killing much of the ground vegetation. Heavy rainfall of the area washed away most of the topsoil. The combination of the effects of tree removal, heavy rains, smelter fumes and uncontrolled bushfires, are evident in the bare ground areas that are spread across the foothills of Mount Lyell and Mount Owen to this day. Queenstown is a great stopover when visiting the West Coast, with many West Coast attractions only a short drive away. Queenstown has a good range of places to sleep, as well as very picturesque drives to the nearby attractions. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Vedanta Resources Mt Lyell mine safety in spotlight at inquest into worker deaths By Laura Beavis An inquest starting in Tasmania's west today will investigate three deaths that stunned the north west Tasmanian mining community over a six-week period in 2013.Craig Gleeson, 45, and Alistair Lucas, 25, fell to their deaths in the Mt Lyell Copper Mine in Queenstown when the wooden platform they were working on collapsed on December 9 of that year. Thirty-nine days later, 55-year-old Michael Welsh died after he was crushed by a sudden inundation of mud while he was removing sediment from the same mine on January 17, 2014.The mine went into care and maintenance mode soon after Mr Welsh's death, resulting in about 200 job losses.Coroner Simon Cooper is set hear evidence in Queenstown for two days before the inquest into the deaths moves to Hobart for another two-and-a-half weeks.The inquest will first examine the deaths of Mr Gleeson and Mr Lucas, before considering the circumstance of Mr Welsh's death.The mine's owner, Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT), pleaded guilty in 2016 to failing to comply with health and safety duties in relation to the first two deaths, and was fined $225,000. During the sentencing at Burnie's Magistrates Court, Magistrate Tamara Jago said CMT did not test the strength of the timber platform.A Worksafe Tasmania report had found the wood used in a temporary platform Mr Gleeson had made to carry out the work did not meet Australian standards. It also found the chipping hammer Mr Gleeson was using came loose and slammed into the timber, splitting the platform and causing the pair to fall 22 metres onto broken rocks. CMT and former mine manager Gerard Clyde pleaded not guilty to workplace safety charges in relation to Mr Welsh's death, but the prosecution was dropped after a magistrate disallowed expert evidence from mining consultant John Webber. However coroner Simon Cooper has already ruled that he will hear evidence from Mr Webber at next week's inquest.CMT is preparing a business case to reopen the Mt Lyell mine with upgraded environmental and safety standards, but a final decision on the mine's future is yet to be made.The Tasmanian Government last year gave the mine's owner Vedanta Resources $9.5 million in grants for four projects to prepare for the mine's reopening.This mine, which was founded in 1883 and began full-scale production in 1896, was acquired by Vedanta in 2000.Vedanta is controlled through Volcan Investments, the family trust of Indian mining magnate Anil Agarwal.

But that listing has lapsed, and the government seems in no hurry to re-impose it. At the same time, resources companies are applying to mine the mineral-rich area, something that conservationists say is threatening the environment. Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Tasmania.

Mount Lyell was the dominant copper mining company of the West Coast from 1893 to 1994, and was based in Queenstown, Tasmania. Following consolidation of leases and company assets at the beginning of the twentieth century, Mount Lyell was the major company for the communities of Queenstown, Strahan and Gormanston. It remained dominant until its closure in 1994. The Mount Lyell mining operations produced more than a million tonnes of copper, 750 tonnes of silver and 45 tonnes of gold since mining commenced in the early 1890s - which is equivalent to over 4 billion dollars worth of metal in 1995 terms.
