Port of Karumba
The Port of Karumba is located at the mouth of the Norman River in the south-east corner of the Gulf of Carpentaria.
The port provides for general cargo, fuel, fisheries products and the export of live cattle. Karumba also acts as a transhipment port for Mornington Island, other Gulf communities and the Port of Weipa for the majority of the year, with refrigerated semi-trailers bringing goods north to Karumba for transhipment.
New Century Resources has also committed to re-establish transhipment operations through the Port of Karumba. NCR has taken over the Century Mine facilities, both at the port and mine for annual export volumes of 300,000 – 400,000 tonnes over an estimated mine life of 6.5 years.
The company has also negotiated with Ports North to maintain the channel depth over the life-time of the project.
