Mineralogy and Sino Iron – The Saga Continues

    View Author April 2017

    In our September edition of Construction Matters, in an article entitled “Mineralogy v Sino Iron: A Match Not Made In Heaven”, we discussed the ongoing dispute between Clive Palmer’s company Mineralogy and various other entities regarding the Sino Iron iron ore project.

    In Mineralogy Pty Ltd v Sino Iron Pty Ltd [2017] FCAFC 55, the Federal Court of Appeal has upheld the decision of the primary judge (Edelman J) and dismissed Mineralogy’s appeal from an order that Mineralogy be permanently restrained from acting upon purported termination notices it issued.

    In its judgment, the court dealt with some important legal issues relevant to construction projects.
