New Zealand Steel Mining joins Straterra
New Zealand Steel Mining has joined Straterra’s Board – adding depth and strength to representation of the NZ minerals sector, Straterra chairman, Mark Cadzow, announced today.
NZ Steel Mining is a subsidiary wholly owned by Bluescope Steel Minerals Limited of Australia, which operates manufacturing plants in 15 countries servicing markets around the world. NZ Steel, operates a fully integrated steel mill at Glenbrook, South Auckland, producing a large range of steel products for local and export markets.
The Vice-President of Bluescope Steel Minerals, Derek Charge, has been appointed to the Straterra Board, taking the Straterra membership to 55.
“As the industry group representing the New Zealand mineral sector, we value the experience and knowledge of our membership. I welcome New Zealand Steel Mining to the Straterra board because it strengthens our skills set and knowledge, as well as our ability to engage with government and provide policy advice and advocacy,” Mr Cadzow said.
Next year the Government’s plans include completion of the Crown minerals regime review; health & safety review; resource management reforms; and entry into force of environmental legislation in New Zealand’s wider marine jurisdiction.
• Ironsands, coal and limestone are key ingredients for making steel. NZ Steel mines iron sands at its Waikato North Head (Maioro) and Taharoa mines, and purchases coal and limestone direct from the miners of this resource.
