    Darwin Port Corporation – Bulk Commodities


    1. What are the details of the planning and development undertaken to provide capacity for Minemakers Limited to export bulk commodities through Darwin Port Corporation.
    ___________________________


    ANSWER

    The Darwin Port Corporation is in ongoing discussion with Minemakers in respect to their potential export of rock phosphate via the East Arm Wharf from their Wonarah project.

    In May 2009 the two parties signed a confidential ‘Heads of Agreement’ document to ensure appropriate capacity of Port infrastructure and land will be available for the export of the Wonarah product through the Port of Darwin.

    The two parties continue to work closely together and terms are currently being negotiated to finalise a successful long term arrangement for the project to proceed.
