    Is "one of Austrilia's larger mines" correct usage?

    Hello, everyone.

    I'd like to know whether the following sentence is grammatical. I have never seen such a usage before.

    The March 2005 mine production rate is an annualised 9.1 million tonnes making it one of Australia's larger mines.
    Many thanks

    Richard

    It's fine. To me, it means that it is definitely in the large mine category, but not at the very top.
