Roy Hill is leading the development of a new generation of integrated iron ore mining, rail & port operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Construction has already started on the mine and associate infrastructure with project ramp up scheduled for early 2013. The project is a world-class, low phosphorus, haematite iron ore deposit located in the Pilbara, one of the world’s premier iron ore provinces, and the only independent iron ore project with West Australian majority ownership.
The project includes:
• 55 Mtpa mine, processing plant, airport and permanent accommodation village
• 344 kilometre heavy haul railway linking the mine and port
• Port stockyard and two-berth export facility in Port Hedland
• Integrated Corporate Headquarters and Remote Operations Centre based in Perth
With a target date of first ore on ship by late 2014 Roy Hill has already achieved some significant milestones.
All primary environmental and other approvals are in place and a $3.2bn equity agreement has been finalised with a consortium comprising POSCO, Marubeni Corporation, STX Corporation and China Steel Corporation. Hancock Prospecting remains the majority shareholder.
Early works such as clearing the centreline for the railway and dredging of the harbour have been completed and long lead items have been ordered.
Construction of Roy Hill’s Corporate Headquarters and Remote Operations Centre has begun as has work to build the mine and port accommodation.
At Roy Hill we are creating an organisation that will set us apart from the rest. A company where knowledge, innovation and collaboration are the key drivers of creating a true thinking organisation, that is a leading mining operation from production performance, company culture and citizenship perspectives.
