North-west Queensland's rail corridor won't be able to handle a new underground mine opening next week, according to a local mayor.
Mining giant Xstrata says its Ernest Henry underground copper mine, about 40 kilometres north -east of Cloncurry, will be operational next week.
But Cloncurry mayor Andrew Daniels says the mine's three million tonne annual production rate will be too much for the rail line.
"I think our rail line is going to struggle big time," he said.
"There's going to be a lot more tonnage on that line, and it's been proven that it just won't handle that.
"While QR are in charge of it, we're going to be left floundering."
