NT critical minerals projects charging ahead

The Australian Government continues to strengthen the nation’s critical minerals sector, with support for two large job creating projects in the Northern Territory.

Major project status has been granted to the Finniss Lithium Mine Project and the Mount Peake Vanadium, Titanium and Iron Mine and Processing Facility.

The Mount Peake project will see a mine site established about 235kms north of Alice Springs and a facility set up in Darwin to produce and process vanadium, titanium and iron. This will create up to 1600 jobs during construction and up to 1000 ongoing jobs during operation.
