New NQ fertiliser mine could have 200-year life

23 May 2019

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was at the Port of Townsville today announcing prescribed project status for an Agripower Australia Ltd processing plant to be built in Yabulu near Townsville.

Agripower will use the Port of Townsville to export fertiliser to the world, sourcing it from one of the world's largest deposits of amorphous silica at Greenvale.

Eventually, Agripower expects to produce 1-million tonnes of fertiliser annually from the facility.
