• Additional production support infrastructure and modifications to existing processing infrastructure;

• Waste fines storage facility; 

• Water supply infrastructure; 

• Extending existing communications infrastructure; 

• Power supply upgrades (including 15km of overhead power line); 

• Non-process infrastructure (heavy vehicle workshop, tyre change, wash-down and refuelling facilities); 

• Temporary construction accommodation; and 

• Upgrading existing facilities in Pannawonica town (to support ongoing mining operations).  


It is a Rio Tinto requirement that standards utilised are either Australian or internationally recognised equivalents, unless otherwise justified due to specific technological, commercial, intellectual property or similar requirements. All requests for proposal (RFP), tender and contract document references will stipulate any standards requirements. In certain circumstances, materials specifications in RTPs may be met by using either Australian or internationally recognised standards. Otherwise it is the project’s intent that standards specified in RTPs do not seek to exclude Australian business from participating in Tier 1 supply opportunities.  


Construction will provide employment for approximately 800 personnel (at peak).
