The Roy Hill Project is a 55 million tonne per annum (Mtpa) iron ore mining,
rail and port project being developed in West Australia’s Pilbara region.
Situated approximately 115 kilometres north of Newman, Roy Hill is a world-class,
low phosphorus, Marra Mamba 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 will consist of a:
- Conventional open pit, bulk mining operation from multiple production benches
- 55Mtpa wet processing plant
- 344 kilometre single line, heavy haul railway
- Purpose built, dedicated two berth iron ore port facility at Port Hedland, capable of receiving, stockpiling, screening and exporting
- 55Mtpa (wet) of direct shipped iron ore as lump and fines.
The Roy Hill Project has a defined mineralisation of more than 2.3bt of +50% Fe iron ore of which 1.2bt is +55% Fe, enough to sustain a mine life of more than 20 years
Roy Hill is on track to load its first shipment of ore for export in late 2015.
