Senator PALTRIDGE - It is now an established fact that the iron ore deposits in Western Australia exceed in tonnage anything that only a few years ago was even dreamed of. The logged deposits in Western Australia - I am citing a figure used recently by the Premier - now exceed 15,000 million tons of iron ore. It is true that applications for export have been made to the Commonwealth Government. I know of only one application which is outstanding at the moment, and that I know because of a Press report I have seen within the last day or two. That is the application for export in respect of deposits at Mount Newman, which has been lodged by the new combination, American Metals Climax Inc. and the Colonial Sugar Refining Company Ltd., known locally, I think, as Climax. As for other applications, I think that they have all been met. I do not know of one that is outstanding. If I am wrong, I shall take an early opportunity to correct myself.
