Originally made for the executives of the mines, now a must play course for any golfing nutter or fanatic. Come check it out Newman information & tourist attractions are brought to you by World Holiday Destination. Book your Newman Accommodation Newman is a town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is located about 1,186 kilometres (737 mi) north of Perth, and 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the Tropic of Capricorn. It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. In the 2006 Australian census, its population was 4,245. Newman is a modern mining town, with suburban-style homes contrasting with the surrounding reddish desert. The Hickman Crater is 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Newman. Commercial area ============ Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population. Transport ============ A privately owned railway, the Mount Newman railway, was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On 21 June 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.569 mi) long, comprising 682 ore cars and eight locomotives made the Newman—Port Hedland trip and is listed as the world's longest ever train. The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. The town is served by Newman Airport. Architecture ========== Being founded in the 1960s, Newman's architecture reflects the modernist styles of that decade and the next, being predominantly functional and devoid of detail or embellishment. As the town was founded and built by a steel company, the majority of buildings use a steel frame construction. This applies to the suburban style homes themselves, most of them being two prefabricated halves inserted together into a steel I-section frame, the columns of which are left exposed on the exterior of the home. This construction method serves not only to showcase the company's product, but also gives strong resistance to cyclone winds which can affect the region from time to time. For this same reason, most houses are elevated from the ground by a few steps. Many houses also have large air-conditioning units situated next to them to provide adequate cooling against the very hot summer temperatures. Climate ========== Newman has an arid climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. The temperature reaches or exceeds over 38°C almost every day in the summer. On 15 January 1998, the temperature reached an all-time recorded high of 47.0°C. Precipitation is sparse, but the influx of monsoonal moisture in the summer, which generally begins in December and lasts until April, raises humidity levels and can cause occasional heavy storms. Winter months are mild to warm, with daily high temperatures ranging from the 20°C to 26°C (18-22°C), and low (nighttime) temperatures rarely dipping below 6°C.

Australia Is Not as Down Under as Everyone Thinks It Is That map of Australia you have? It’s wrong. And the whole country is going to officially relocate to correct the error. The trouble is caused by plate tectonics, the shifting of big chunks of the earth’s surface. Australia happens to be on one of the fastest-moving pieces of all, and by geological standards it’s practically flying: about 2.7 inches northward a year, with a slight clockwise rotation as well. People on the ground may not notice, but the Global Positioning System does. So Australia needs to adjust its longitudes and latitudes so they line up with GPS coordinates. Four times in the last 50 years, Australia has reset the official coordinates of everything in the country to make them more accurate, correcting for other sources of error as well as continental drift. The last adjustment, in 1994, was a doozy: about 656 feet, enough to give the delivery driver an alibi for ringing your neighbor’s doorbell instead of yours. “You might think, ‘Where’s my pizza?’” said Dan Jaksa of Geoscience Australia, the government agency that worries about the coordinates. But something bigger is at stake, he said: intelligent transportation systems that rely on the finer accuracy that will come with the next generation of GPS technology. The next adjustment, due at the end of the year, will be about 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) — not really enough of a discrepancy to throw off consumer-grade satellite navigation systems, which are generally accurate only to within 15 to 30 feet. But the next generation of GPS devices, using both satellites and ground stations, will be accurate to within an inch or less, and new technologies that depend on precise location will be important to Australia’s future. The mining company Rio Tinto already has 71 immense ore trucks rumbling around iron mines in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia that are guided remotely from an office in Perth, 930 miles away. Pilots who patrol the Anna Creek cattle ranch in South Australia must pick out small water bores in the ranch’s 8,880 square miles of dry pasture, an area larger than Israel, where small errors can equate to big misses. “If we get a new pilot, he’s relying on GPS until he finds his way around landmarks,” said the ranch manager, Norm Sims. Not to mention driverless cars. “If you’re 1.5 meters out,” Mr. Jaksa said, “you’re potentially on the wrong side of the road.”

Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This town in Western Australia has the baleful reputation of being home to the greatest industrial disaster in Australian history. Wittenoom was the site of an asbestos mine, where thousands of workers and their families were exposed to lethal levels of blue asbestos 1,000 times higher than was legally regulated at the time. Though the town was shut down in 1966, today the air remains contaminated and toxic to breathe if stirred, and the state of Western Australia has the highest rate of malignant mesothelioma per capita of anywhere in the world. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.

Abstract From about 1896 to 1928, staff of the Geological Survey of Western Australia carried cumbersome, glass-plate cameras into the field to record rock outcrops, mines, field activities and scenes of general interest. GSWA’s collection of 1792 glass-plate negatives, now transferred onto film, contains about 1240 field photos taken during this period; the remaining are photos of laboratory specimens and staff. This remarkable collection represents a little-used archive of images of value to those researching the State's early mining history or interested in retracing some of the arduous expeditions undertaken by its geological pioneers. The earliest photos with a reliable date were taken by Topographical Surveyor SJ Becher who had also served as a Mines Inspector. Although only 12 in number, they show the state of mining at Marble Bar and Nullagine in 1896. HWB Talbot managed to take some 217 photographs while mapping large tracts of the Western Australian interior from the back of a camel during the period 1907 to 1926. Of these, about 52 recorded his 1908 trip along the Canning Stock Route. Torrington Blatchford rivaled Talbot in contributing 218 negatives to the collection from 1897 to 1927. Of particular interest are the 36 images of mines, scenery and station homesteads that he took during a survey of the Pilbara region in 1912. Edward de C. Clarke, later Professor of Geology at the University of Western Australia, was also an enthusiastic photographer, contributing 110 negatives to the collection between 1913 and 1918. In 1916, he and Talbot mounted an historic expedition from Laverton to the Western Australia/South Australia border to map the Warburton Range region: they took about 35 photographs despite suffering injuries to party members during an attack by Aborigines. Other significant contributors to the photographic collection, with the periods covered by their photographs indicated in brackets, include WD Campbell (1901–1909); ADG Esson (1922–1925); CG Gibson (1904–1910); CS Honman (1911–1916); CFV Jackson (1903–1904); JT Jutson (1914–1918); A Gibb Maitland (1907–1915); EC Saint-Smith (1912–1913) and HP Woodward (1905–1916). The efforts of these early geologists succeeded in producing a pictorial record of geological- and mining-related features extending from the Kimberley region to the south coast, and from the west coast to the Western Australian border. Biography Angela’s career as a geologist has taken her from Italy to Southern Africa and finally Australia. She joined the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) in 1997, working first as a regional mapper in the central Yilgarn Craton, and later as a Content Manager compiling and designing geological databases. Throughout her career, she has collaborated in various geotourism and educational projects with different organizations to foster interest in geoscience and to promote community awareness of the role of earth sciences in every day’s life. She is a member of the Earth Sciences History Group of the Geological Society and has served on its committee from 2008 to 2014 while it resided in WA. She is particularly keen in promoting the rich history of the Geological Survey, which is now 131 years old. Hence her talk today on GSWA’s collection of glass plate negatives.
Description 1.Wittenoom,Western Australia Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas. The Wittenoom steering committee met in April 2013 to finalise closure of the town, limit access to the area and raise awareness of the risks. Details of how that would be achieved were to be determined but it would likely necessitate removing the town's remaining residents, converting freehold land to crown land, demolishing houses and closing or rerouting roads. By 2015 six residents remained; in 2016 the number had reduced to three. 2.Kantubek Uzbekistan Kantubek (Russian: Кантубек) was a town on Vozrozhdeniya Island (Uzbekistan) in the Aral Sea. The town is still found on maps, but is uninhabited and lies in ruins today. Kantubek used to have a population of approximately 1,500, and housed scientists and employees of the Soviet Union's top-secret Aralsk-7 biological weapons research and test site. Brian Hayes, a biochemical engineer with the United States Department of Defense's Threat Reduction Agency, led an expedition in the spring and summer of 2002 to neutralize what was believed to be the world's largest anthrax dumping grounds. His team of 113 people neutralized between 100 and 200 tonnes of anthrax over a three-month period. The cost of the cleanup operation was approximately US$5,000,000. 3.Love Canal,Niagara falls Love Canal is a neighborhood within Niagara Falls, New York. It is the site of a pollution disaster that extensively affected the health of hundreds of its residents, necessitating a Superfund cleanup operation. Originally intended in the 1890s as a planned model community, Love Canal grew and then slowly declined before being bought out in the 1940s by the Hooker Company, which dumped industrial waste in the never completed canal. In the late 1970s, Love Canal received national attention for the public health problem originating from the disposal of 22,000 barrels of toxic waste. Numerous families were displaced from their houses, which had been contaminated with chemicals and toxic waste. Many of the families suffered several health issues with common problems of high red blood cell counts and indications of leukemia. The entire neighborhood has since been demolished and a Superfund cleanup was only wrapped up in 2004. New York State Health Department Commissioner David Axelrod calls the Love Canal incident a "national symbol of a failure to exercise a sense of concern for future generations". The Love Canal incident was especially significant as a situation where the inhabitants "overflowed into the wastes instead of the other way around. 4,Picher, Oklahoma Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems. Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site.

Australian innovators Dugless Machinery Company have designed & manufactured the patented Dugless 900 for mine site resource facilities. The concept has been 3 years in the development. Since full operation in December 2008 Dugless Machinery Company have been doing on site demonstration's for various large companies in the Pilbara region of Western Australia with resounding success and are looking beyond the boundaries of Australia. Every mine site has processing problem areas where manual handling is the only answer to these issues. This is where the Dugless 900 comes into the picture being the world's shortest remote controlled purpose built machine at only 560mm high. Manual handling can lead to unexpected work place injuries, costing the industry millions of dollars in payouts. Dugless takes out the human factor in this equation. Not only is it safe but it is also productive doing the work of at least 4 employees without shutting down the system thus making money and return on the investment is justified. The current video is only for demonstration purposes. More information and photo's can be forwarded via email if needed or contact our staff via the website.

It was founded by gold prospectors in 1888, and gazetted in 1890. It is the major town and administrative centre of the Shire of Yilgarn. At the 2006 census, Southern Cross had a population of 708. The town of Southern Cross is one of the many towns which run along the Mundaring to Kalgoorlie Goldfields Water Supply Scheme engineered by C. Y. O'Connor. A succession of gold rushes in the Yilgarn region near Southern Cross in 1887, at Coolgardie in 1892, and at Kalgoorlie in 1893 caused a population explosion in the barren and dry desert centre of Western Australia. It is named after the Southern Cross constellation, and the town's most significant streets are named after stars. Southern Cross is on the standard gauge railway from Perth to Kalgoorlie and beyond. The Prospector and Indian Pacific passenger trains service the town. The former narrow gauge railway reached Southern Cross on 1 July, 1894. DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIPP 2008

Executive Technical Director and Chief Geologist, Andy Beckwith, is explaining potential investors why it can now be the right time to invest in this gold explorer. De Grey's current share price had passed the hype phase, based on the conglomerate story, and is now fully based on solid existing gold resource definitions over 1,2 Moz. In fact, the company is soon going to start bulk sampling with three conglomerate targets. This should provide further upside potential. De Grey has just been waiting for the corresponding permit, and expects to start the first 1-5 tonnes bulk samples from the conglomerate targets in the next weeks. The new gold mill at Withnell had been planned before the first gold nuggets were found on De Grey's landpackages. So, any further discovery would just be on top of the existing value. That mill will then be able to crash very large bulk samples in the amount of up to 20,000 tonnes, preferred from the most promising conglomerate targets, possibly from Loudens Patch. Before that De Grey will continue to do field work, such as orientation sampling, mapping and initial drillings. De Grey and its neighbours, such as Novo Resources, Artemis, ect, assume that the Pilbara Region in Western Australia is a fraction of the Witwatersrand mineralization trend in South Africa. 1,6 Billion gold ounces have been mined and produced there.

Super 8 Home footage of Shay Gap, Western Australia from the early 1970s. Join the Shay Gap group on Facebook! Shay Gap was an iron ore mining town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 1574 km north north east of Perth and 188 km east of Port Hedland (Latitude 20° 31' S Longitude 120° 08' E). It was a company town, developed by Goldsworthy Mining Limited in the 1960s to mine the nearby iron ore deposits. It was formally gazetted as a town in 1972. Shay Gap was named after a pass of the same name located in the hills nearby. The name of the pass has been shown on maps since 1957, and is believed to have been named after a pearler named Robert Shea who, along with his companion Samuel Miller, was murdered by Aboriginals on the De Grey River in 1873. At its peak, the town had a population of over 850 people including families. In 1994, the town was closed by the company and most of the buildings and structures either demolished or relocated elsewhere.

Wittenoom - The Blue Asbestos Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave Devils Dust Movie Trailer - The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REkJuPi1zw Devil's Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock's 2009 book Killer Company, Devil's Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series' production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies. BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went. We didn't know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company's name stamped on sheets of "fibro" in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/no-clean-sweep-as-miniseries-devils-dust-tackles-bernie-bantons-asbestos-story/story-fn9n8gph-1226513068301 Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries' products.

CARAVAN TRIP 2007 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Western Australia Location of Newman in Western Australia (red) Population: 5,139  Established: 1960s Postcode: 6753 Elevation: 544 m (1,785 ft)  Location: 1189 km (739 mi) N of Perth 452 km (281 mi) S of Port Hedland 424 km (263 mi) N of Meekatharra 277 km (172 mi) SE of Tom Price LGA: Shire of East Pilbara State District: Murchison-Eyre Federal Division: Kalgoorlie Mean Max Temp Mean Min Temp Rainfall 31.4 °C 89 °F 17.4 °C 63 °F 310.2 mm 12.2 in Newman, located about 1120 km northeast of Perth and 9 km north of the Tropic of Capricorn, is a town in the Pilbara region. It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. With a population at the 2006 census of 5,139., it is a modern mining town with leafy suburban-style homes providing a stark contrast to the surrounding reddish arid desert area. Originally marginal cattle country, Newman was built in the 1960s with the discovery of rich iron deposits on nearby Mt Whaleback. The discovery marked the start of the resource boom in the WA in the 1970s. A privately owned railway was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On June 21, 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.568 miles) long, comprising 682 ore cars and 8 locomotives made the Newman--Port Hedland trip and is listed as the worlds longest train ever . The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population.

Goldfields-Esperance is one of the largest regions in Western Australia and though the majority of it is sparsely populated, Kalgoorlie and Esperance are major towns supporting significant populations. Despite the regions seeming harshness and remoteness from Perth, many Goldfieds-Esperance towns were some of the earliest to be settled in the fledgling colony. Esperance was settled in 1863 for agriculture and Coolgardie spring up almost overnight when gold was discovered and was the third largest town in the colony by 1892. The gold rush of the late 1800s gave birth to many towns that flourished and faded when the gold ran out. Some such as Kanowna, Dundas and Niagara disappeared back into the dirt leaving little more broken bottles and rusting wire to signify their existence, while others manage to hang on in a greatly diminished form. For residents and travellers alike, the Goldfields-Esperance region is generally thought of as having two halves; northern and southern, demarcated with an imaginary line at Kalgoorlie. The northern is typified by desert landscapes dominated by mining, the southern sees trees and green farmland right up to granite bound coast. Being both inland and southern, the temperatures daytime vary widely. Summer months can see scorching temperatures exceeding 40°C while its not uncommon for the night to dip below 0°C. The coastal areas have particularly temperamental weather patterns with cold cloudy and warm sunny skies alternating throughout the day. Falling into an abandoned mineshaft is a real danger in the northern parts of the region as the country around Kalgoorlie, Coolgardie, Menzies, Leonora and Laverton is riddled with more than 100 years of mining activity. Most of these holes are not signposted or marked on maps but are readily identified by the white pile of quartz or greenish waste soil nearby. Perfectly normal looking ground may be honeycombed with old tunnels mere meters underground that could subside without warning. It would be prudent to tell someone where you are going if you plan to go out exploring and be careful about where you step. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

The Pilbara is a place of extreme contrasts. Here, the idea of land as a source of spiritual and cultural identity and the idea of land as commodity co-exist.—Craig Walsh The Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane has joined forces with Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) to present Embedded, a major new installation by Walsh. The show's genesis lies in a commission from the mining company Rio Tinto and MCA that allowed Walsh to undertake a four-week residency with the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation in the Murujuga National Park and the whole Burrup Peninsula (Murujuga), near Karratha, Western Australia. The brief was to raise awareness and celebrate the exceptional cultural heritage of the National Heritage Place and the rock art it protects. Walsh worked with the Circle of Elders (the traditional custodians) and the Rangers of the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation as well as Rio Tinto staff. In a makeshift studio in Dampier, he interviewed Elders on video. He then projected the videos onto the rugged landscape, in locations that were particularly important to the individual subjects. From documentation of these projections, Walsh produced photographic portraits and video works. Walsh also produced Standing Stone Site (2012), a video-wall work depicting shifting light on a sacred site that features ninety-six standing stones, the largest concentration of standing stones in Australia. Co-curator Judith Blackall comments: 'The physical profile of the horizon remains fixed and monumental, unmoved as it has been for thousands of years, while the spectacular transformation of colour from deep purple to orange red is rendered visible through a technique of high-resolution interval photography.'

What is expected to happen with all three Northern LOWS all wrapped up into a few minutes 7:00 - 8:30 - The Queensland LOW what it looks like now 8:30 - 22:00 - The models for both the Gulf LOW and the Queensland LOW 22:00 - 29:00 - A look at ensembles (27:00 - 29:00) talks about the Gulf and next WA/Pilbara LOW IN A NUTSHELL BASED ON 0Z GUIDANCE ON CORAL SEA LOW ONLY ***USE WITH CAUTION*** TC PROBS 80% Probability of a Tropical Cyclone in the next 7 days STRIKE PROBS Approximately 30% chance of making a coastal landfall, approx 70% chance of getting within about 200kms of the coastline LANDFALL TIMEFRAME While landfall remains unlikely on most guidance available, if it was to happen it would most likely happen between late Saturday evening and late Monday evening. If landfall does not happen by late Monday evening, it is unlikely to happen at all as the system will begin tracking away from the coast from early tuesday/late Monday LANDFALL REGION While landfall anywhere on the coast remains unlikely, should it occur, it is most likely to occur in the region between Innisfail and Macka and in particular between Cardwell and Proserpine. ASSOCIATED RAINFALLS This is a tough one. Almost unanimous agreements of model guidance on a stall near the coastline on Sunday/Monday and early Tuesday could result in extreme rainfalls south of the system centre on those days. This exact area of those extreme (400mm+) possible rainfall totals is heavily dependant on the exact proximity of the system to the coast. Basically the system will need to lie less than 200kms offshore in order to see those extreme totals become a possibility. If the system lies further offshore, the rainfall possibilities drop significantly with falls of 20-100mm likely. ASSOCIATED WIND IMPACTS Gale force winds are expected on coastal waters south of the system centre. Some gales may also be experienced west of the system centre and also east of it however gales to the NW of the centre will be less likely to occur. Damaging and possibly destructive winds are a possibility on Sunday/Monday but dependant on how close to the coast the system lies. Next video March 6th at about 9PM Qld time.

After the global sector for iron ore experienced a downturn years ago, Chinese producers shut numerous mines throughout the country. But industry executives stated those mines may reopen soon after iron ore prices rebounded. Increased activity by Chinese iron ore producers could also help the country's steel mills by cutting the need for raw material imports. A boom in the Chinese steel market also helped push the price of iron ore to its highest price since August 2014. Metal bulletin data from last month shows that a ton of iron ore is priced at $94.86. If the price stays above $80 a ton, a head of a mining company in China expects nearly half of the shuttered mines to restart production. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/tkx0HrD1ObQ/us-china-ironore-idUSKBN16911Q http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com
