The Iron Knob Progress Association Website
Iron Knob has faced more than it's share of changes since the Iron Knob mine was closed in the mid 1990's. Population loss as well as losing the financial support of BHP has meant that the remaining community members have had to battle along almost alone for quite some time
Their "Aussie Battler" spirit and a quiet steely determination to not give up or in, has kept Iron Knob not only alive but also with a hope for the future. Mining has once again begun in Iron Knob but with a downturn in the economy in regards to mining the activity at the mine is not as busy as we had hoped.
Arrium mining is still at work in the Quarries at Iron Knob and when the demand for high grade iron ore picks up they will be ready to meet that demand.
In the mean time Iron Knob continues to keep it's doors open due to the dedication of a few hard working volunteers who refuse to quit.
The Iron Knob Progress Association presents this website for the use of community members and visitors alike, to help keep them informed of what is happening in our district.
We encourage community members and local business to use this website to promote their activities and can offer groups and business a chance to advertise on these pages for free. For Businesses outside our local area we can also offer advertising with fees you will find more than reasonable.
