Qube lands Finniss project lithium transport deal
Qube Bulk will provide haulage solutions for Core Lithium


Qube has been selected as preferred haulage and transport contractor for Core Lithium’s Finniss Lithium Project in the Northern Territory.

The mining operator was granted the first-ever lithium-focused mineral lease in the NT, with the 20-year term announced on January 21 this year, moving the NT closer to having its first operating lithium mine and making Core Lithium the first Australian lithium producer outside Western Australia.

The ASX-listed company says it will finalise contract terms with Qube and other contractors Primero and Lucas TCS for the project, located just south of Darwin port.

"These key contract roles are crucial for the success of the Finniss Lithium Project, so we did not make our decisions on who should be awarded these packages of work lightly," Core Lithium managing director Stephen Biggins says.

"We believe we have selected the best contractors for the respective contracts out a field of worthy contractors, and look forward to working with Primero, Lucas TCS and Qube once the contracts have been finalised and the next phases of work at Finniss get underway.

"Final award of these contracts will follow the completion and release of the Definitive Feasibility Study and financing of the Finniss Project, which should see Core on-track for first production at Finniss by the end of the year."

Qube tells ATN it is unable to provide more details of the deal at this stage.
