A New Shelter for McArthur River Mine That Can Stand Up to Cyclones
McArthur River mine is a world-class zinc-lead mine - one of the world's largest zinc resource. Situated in the Gulf of Carpentaria, the mine is an important part of the Northern Territory's resources history.
However another feature of the Northern Territory is the weather conditions - expecially during the wet season. This region is prone to tropical cyclones (also known as hurricanes and typhoons) and these cyclones can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
