    Miner seeking $6m more from Broken Hill council

    By Margaret Paul

    Mining company Perilya says it hopes to be repaid another $6 million now it has lodged a second objection to land valuations in Broken Hill.

    The company is already seeking nearly $6.88 million in overpaid council rates, after a court found the NSW Valuer-General overpriced its land in 2007.

    The Valuer-General is appealing against that decision.

    Late last month, Perilya officially lodged an objection with the Valuer-General's office for the 2010 valuation.

    Visiting Broken Hill yesterday, the company's secretary and general counsel, Paul Marinko, says it is up to the Valuer-General to respond to that objection, but he thinks the company has been overpaying its rates between 2010 and 2012.

    "We've done some back of the envelope valuations, and probably something in the order of maybe five to $6 million. It's a general number at this point but it'll be something in that order," Mr Marinko said.

    "It's very similar to the objection we lodged to the 2007 valuation and it's simply an objection to the basis on which the valuation is made.

    "So the basis of the objection is essentially identical to the 2007, and that's why we waited until after that decision was determined before lodging this objection."
