Minara Resources History

Minara Resources, previously known as Anaconda Nickel was established in 1994. It became floated on the ASX in March 1994. The Murrin Murrin operation was set up by WA mining entrepreneur Andrew Forrest's Anaconda Nickel. The Project was not completed due to high expenditure costs therefore MRE decided to sue plant builder Fluor Daniel, thus receiving $93M from the decision. The plant has been progressively built under the new management, with Peter Johnston being the CEO of the Company, which has resulted in enhanced production rates.
