Another Tinkler company to be liquidated

Mining magnate Nathan Tinkler's business empire continues to come under pressure after a court ordered the liquidation of another of his companies.

In the Federal Court in Adelaide on Wednesday, registrar Patricia Christie ordered that Patinack Farm Administration Pty Ltd be wound up in insolvency.

Ms Christie ordered that Anthony Matthews, an official liquidator, be appointed as liquidator of the company, following the legal action brought by creditor Workcover Corporation of South Australia.

Workcover's legal costs were to be fixed at $3648.17 and to be reimbursed in accordance with the Corporations Act, while the costs of supporting creditor, Workcover Queensland, were to be fixed at $500.

On Tuesday, NSW Supreme Court senior deputy registrar Nicholas Flaskas ordered that Mr Tinkler's Mulsanne Resources be wound up and Ferrier Hodgson's Robyn Duggan and John Melluish be appointed as liquidators.
