About Glencore Port Operations
At the Port of Townsville Glencore manages and operates the Berth 8 shiploader in conjunction with storage and logistics facilities.
Our port operations represent a critical part of our integrated copper and zinc supply chain, which provides jobs for more than 6,100 people across North Queensland. Our businesses explore, mine, process, transport, store and export copper and zinc-lead-silver commodities from our operations across Queensland to the rest of the world.
We store, handle and export a number of own-source and third-party products, including zinc and copper concentrates fertiliser (on behalf of Incitec Pivot Limited) and small amounts of lead concentrates.
Our Mount Isa Mines lead bullion and copper cathode are managed and exported generally across Berth 3 by Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS).
