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.

Broken Hill's very own Leaning Tower of Pisa - the disfigured South Mine poppet head - is sending shivers down the spines of local history buffs.

"It's an unstable structure," the Historical Society's Don Mudie said.
CBH looking to hire
Thursday, 19th January, 2012
CBH Resources is knee-deep in its recruitment drive to service the Rasp Mine.
The company is looking to fill at least 34 positions, both for mill operators and senior management.
CBH chief operating officer, Visko Sulicich was quietly happy with the amount of applications the company had received and said interviews and appointments would be made in coming weeks.
Mr Sulicich said they were aiming to promote a “live-in” workforce, to keep costs down and avoid access issues.

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.
BDT reporter Paula Doran was this week given exclusive access to the historic mine site, which is about to again burst into action after lying dormant for the past few years.
