Herbert river mills – week 5 update

Just under 150,000 tonnes of cane were crushed for the week.


Wet weather continues to impact harvesting and crushing operations, with slowly drying ground conditions resulting in reduced throughput.


The temporary stop to crushing enabled crews to conduct factory maintenance at both Herbert mills.


This means there is no requirement for a scheduled maintenance stop at Victoria Mill this coming week. Macknade Mill will undertake a four-hour shredder maintenance stop this coming Friday.

CCS levels consistently remained around the 12.16 range for the week – slightly below budget.

Please remember to take care around our cane rail network and always give way to cane trains.
