Toro to ship uranium through Territory and South Australia

 

Following federal approval for its uranium mine, Toro Energy is now planning to ship its concentrate through the Northern Territory and South Australia.

Earlier this week the uranium mine received approval for its $269 million Wiluna mine, which is set to become Western Australia's first uranium mine.

Now the miner is planning to ship its uranium through two other states.

According to Toro Energy managing director Vanessa Guthrie, shipping is likely to start in the next two years, the West Australian reports.

Toro will use existing rail between South Australia and the Northern Territory to move the uranium.

"We would take it to Port Adelaide then rail through to Darwin as currently happens with the other co-shippers," she told ABC radio.
