Australian tantalum and miner Sons of Gwalia Ltd. net profit fell 10% in the fiscal year ended June 30.
The fall was due to significant items, which cut the profit. These items included a partial writedown in the carrying value of the Leonora underground mine in Western Australia.
The writedown was partly offset by $7.7 million profit when the company sold its interest in the Kemberton silica sand project in early 2002.
The bodies of two Russian women were found in Turkey's Bodrum. The killer tied the bodies and wrapper them in sheets before getting rid of them
