McArthur River Mine is located in the Gulf of Carpentaria in the Northern Territory of Australia. Our site is 65 km south-west of Borroloola, 120 km south of the Bing Bong loading facility and 970 km southeast of Darwin by road, or 716 km by air.
Our mine is contained within five adjoining mineral leases located on the McArthur River Station Pastoral Lease. The 8,000 km2 station is an operating property leased and managed by Colinta Holdings Pty Ltd, a Glencore subsidiary. It runs around 17,000 head of cattle.
The Bing Bong loading facility is situated on a mining lease also located within the McArthur River Station. This mineral lease extends into the Gulf of Carpentaria which includes the navigation channel between the loading facility and the offshore transfer zone.
