PROJECT

BHP Western Australia Iron Ore requires the development of an additional ore deposit to sustain production as the Yandi mine is exhausted over the next five to ten years.

As a high-grade deposit, which enables the business to utilise existing infrastructure at Mining Area C, South Flank is the selected long term option to replace this production.. The South Flank deposit is located approximately 130 km by road north-west of the town of Newman, and approximately 8 km to the south of the Companys existing Mining Area C operation.
