WA’s new “mining+” boom

ABC Radio Focus

ABC Radio’s Focus with Nadia Mitsopoulos interviews EcoMag’s Shaun Triner as part of an in-depth discussion about the increase in economic activity taking place in Western Australia’s north.

Kylah Morrison, CEO of the Karratha & Districts Chamber of Commerce points out that one of the features making the current economic pick-up different from previous cycles, is the emphasis on diversifying into value added businesses outside iron ore and liquid petroleum gas mining – including EcoMag.

Shaun Triner (from around 16 minutes in) talks about EcoMag’s triple bottom line goals (social, financial and environmental), provides insights into the global market for high purity magnesium products, and outlines plans for the Karratha Eco Hub Innovation and Industry Precinct.
