Consmin’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Pilbara Chromite, owns and operates the Coobina Chromite operation, located 80km south-east of Newman in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Consmin acquired the Coobina project in 2001 and commissioned a new mining and processing operation in February 2002. Since the start of production, Consmin has become well-established as an independent and reliable supplier of chromite to the world market.

Mining and processing operations at Coobina are carried out along similar lines to those at Woodie Woodie with product trucked to Port Hedland where it is exported to major overseas markets, primarily in China.
