Site of the administrative offices, pelletising plant and off-shore loading facilities of Savage River. The port is at the northern end of an 85 km pipeline from Savage River through which crushed ore is pumped as a slurry. At Port Latta the ore is pelletised and moved by conveyor along the enormous jetty. The largest vessels to visit Tasmanian waters - huge bulk ore carriers from Japan - use these loading facilities. Tours may be available on request.
