Perilya isn't the only Broken Hill miner to be hit hard by the carbon tax, with CBH Resources expecting a more than $7 million hit to its operating costs over the next three years.

Chief operating officer, Visko Sulicich, yesterday said the forecast increase in generation charges - for the Rasp mine and the company's Endeavor operation at Cobar - was the direct result of the carbon tax.

"Over our two operations in Broken Hill and Cobar it'll cost us over $7 million over the next three years," Mr Sulicich said.

If the people of Broken Hill are looking for a boost as we head toward 2012 then it comes in the form of what is advancing atop our world famous line of lode.

The feverish activity being undertaken by CBH Resources may be largely hidden from public view, but its benefits are resonating loudly and building excitement for all those involved.
