Miners suspend operations in Australia, brace for cyclones Trevor, Veronica

Cyclone Trevor made landfall in Australia's Northern Territory on March 23, while Cyclone Veronica is no longer expected to make landfall, BBC News reported March 25.

However, heavy rain and waves from Cyclone Veronica are expected to cause flooding in Western Australia.

Miners were forced to halt operations in both states, and iron ore export terminals Port Hedland, Cape Lambert and Dampier were all shut down, according to reports.

In Northern Territory, Glencore PLC suspended operations at its McArthur River zinc mine, while South32 Ltd. halted its GEMCO manganese operations.

In Western Australia, Rio Tinto closed rail operations in the Pilbara and at its Robe Valley iron ore mine. BHP Group suspended output at the Pyrenees oil project.
