I see that Ford has secured an annual supply of 45000 tonnes of magnesium from Australian Magnesium.The mag company will need to spend $A 1.2 billion to upgrade the plant to cope.Sounds like some nice car building coming up.Magnesium is apparently 4 times lighter than steel yet stronger and 50% lighter than aluminium.I wonder whats happening.

Possible Engine Production AND Transmission production, OR part production for the above.
Transmission parts to be exported to the states, apparantly Ford USA are closing down 1 of the plants that makes auto's.

We all know the cars have to go to Jenny Craig to help with the fuel consumption, and also be stronger to help with ADR's for side impacts, etc, so this can only be a good thing...
