Mining heavyweights hit the high seas

Mining heavyweights hit the high seas

Port of Mackay was doing some heavy lifting for the mining industry as a 1350-tonne collection of equipment was loaded for export recently.

Six Komatsu 830E trucks and three Caterpillar D11R bulldozers set sail on the BBC Echo on Monday bound for Morocco.

North Queensland Bulk Ports said the exporter, Plantco, had been granted exclusive reselling rights on the equipment – which came from a Bowen Basin coal mine.

The machinery is set to be recommissioned at a Moroccan phosphate mine.
