Mining company Renascor Resources is hosting two drop in sessions next week to discuss their proposed graphite mine just outside Arno Bay.

The company was recently granted a mining lease for the Siviour graphite deposit.

The deposit is fifteen kilometres west of the Arno Bay township and believed to be fifth largest reported reserve in the world.

Should the project go ahead, it could see the creation of 100 construction jobs and 50-100 permanent jobs depending on the project scale.

Two 'drop in' community information sessions will be held on Tuesday, June 18 at the Arno Bay War Memorial Hall from 11am to 2pm and from 5pm to 7pm.

Anyone interested in the project including power and water infrastructure is invited to drop in and ask questions.
