Webinar provides update on CopperString potential

Webinar provides update on CopperString  potential

Townsville Enterprise will host a live CopperString webinar next week to focus on the growth potential from the planned $1.5 billion transmission project.

Connecting to the National Electricity Market is expected to lower power prices paid by miners and other customers in the North West Minerals Province by at least 40 per cent

Proponents say this has the potential to maximise opportunities to tap into an estimated $680 billion in known resources remaining in the North West

The August 19 webinar will be hosted by Townsville Enterprise chief executive officer Patricia O’Callaghan and features by a panel of industry experts, including:

  • Hon. Ian Macfarlane, CEO Queensland Resources Council
  • Joseph W. O’Brien, Director CopperString 2.0
  • Ross Thompson, Soren Consulting – Resource Economics 
  • Jon Loraine, Neuchatel Consulting – Mining & Minerals Processing
  • Ranee Crosby, CEO Port of Townsville Limited
