So far in the 2013 crushing season, the Isis Mill has crushed about 1,015,216 tonnes.

This week, 69,567.87 tonnes was crushed, with an average weekly CCS of 15.14 units.

The weekly throughput target at Isis Mill is 63,000 and this is the 13th consecutive week the target has been exceeded.

Harvesting conditions are ideal and bin weight remains consistently high.
