New Century Resources has recommenced annual dredging at the Port of Karumba as part of the scheduled operational restart of the Century zinc mine.

The dredging program will bring the channel back to 3.2m depth, allowing transhipment of zinc concentrate from Karumba to bulk cargo export vessels 20km offshore.

The company remains on track for operations in Q3 2018, with plant commissioning scheduled for July 2018 and first zinc concentrate production in August 2018.
